    Thank you for that bit of info. I was able to see the LTC where I want to work and their rating is pretty good.

    Hope this helps others.

    The nursing home where I used to work is a 2 star home. That had gone down, I am sorry to say.

    Thanks for the post, I wondered what the nursing home I used to work at was rated because I didn't like working there as a cna and thought that maybe all were like that. Well they only recieved a 2 star. AND I THOUGHT IT WAS JUST ME!! I knew the patients weren't given the time they deserved. They spread us so thin that we were rushed to the point of unsafe nursing. They derserve to only get 2 star and they have really turned me off to ltc but now I may try a better home!!!

    Was glad to see my current workplace was rated 5 stars but this site is not up to date. Our last two yearly state inspections were not even listed and we got perfect surveys both years. The place I worked at prior did not fair up so well. I am very proud of our level of care and most of the people that work there.

    I feel bad now. I just checked the one I work for PRN. I thought it was pretty good, compared to the ones I've worked for in the past. It rates a 1.

    Also noticed though it has not been updated in a while. The last few state surveys have been pretty good, or atleast so I hear.
