A stack of papersIn June of 2019 two U.S. Senators, Democratic Sen. Bob Casey and Republican Sen. Pat Toomey, released a “secret list” of nursing homes with a documented pattern of poor care considered for inclusion in The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Special Focus Facility Program (SFFP).  Before Sen. Casey and Sen. Toomey released the secret list, which was compiled by CMS, it had not been available to the public.  After Sen. Casey and Sen. Toomey released the list, CMS agreed to update and release the list on a monthly basis.

The original “secret list” identified 17 nursing homes in New York State, including one in Monroe County – New Roc Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. New Roc, formerly Blossom North, changed its name after ten employees were arrested in March of 2014 for allegedly failing to provide adequate care to an elderly resident who was a double-amputee and later died. In December of 2019, the secret list was updated. The update identified New Roc Nursing and Rehabilitation Center as one of the “Facilities That Have Not Improved”.  The list also identifies another local nursing home, Creekview Nursing and Rehab Center (formerly Westgate Nursing Home) to be a candidate for the SFF program.

If you or a loved one are considering a nursing home listed by CMS, you should consider whether this is the best choice for your family and ask the nursing home what they are doing to improve their quality of care.  If you suspect that your loved one has been the victim of nursing home neglect or abuse, we may be able to help.
