Nursing Home "Watch List" Issued By Consumer Reports

The "Watch List" was released this week by Consumer Reports.  The list was compiled using state inspection surveys that Consumer Reports says, raise questions about quality of care and safety.  The Watch List report tells folks who are looking at nursing homes to ask plenty of questions, and it says that loved ones should carefully monitor the care being given.

Here are all 16 East Texas homes on the list in alphabetical order. 

Birmingham Health Care in Rusk...

Briarcliff Health Center in Tyler...

Care Inn in Gladewater...

Country Inn Healthcare in Van...

Havencare Nursing in Longview...

Hawkins Care Center in Hawkins...

Highland Pines Nursing Home in Longview...

Holiday Lodge in Longview...

Moore's Nursing Home in Pittsburg...

Panola Care and Rehab in Carthage...

Pine Hill Nursing and Rehab in Jefferson...

Reunion Plaza Senior Care in Tyler...

Sunshine Nursing Home in New London...

Texas Choice of Henderson...

Westwood Convalescent in Troup... and

Woodhaven Nursing and Rehab in Sulphur Springs. 

Consumer Reports warns that some facilities have what they call a "yo-yo" pattern of compliance... sometimes good, sometimes not. And that some of the homes on the watch list may have a current inspection showing no problems.

They say to go to reports of years past... ask questions, and even ask families of current residents what they think.
