Consumers Union nursing home watch list misleading, providers says

The most recent Nursing Home Watch List released by the Consumers Union is misleading and unfair, according to the American Health Care Association.

"The vast majority of nursing homes across the nation provide the type of quality, compassionate care that patients, residents and their families want and deserve, but consumers wouldn't know that by viewing Consumers Union's 'Watch List,'" said Hal Daub, president and CEO of AHCA.

The latest Watch List is an updated version of the 2004 list, which came under sharp criticism late last year and was eventually withdrawn by the consumer-advocate orgarnization.
