Please take a moment to review the information below from Medicare.gov on nursing homes.
Nursing Home Compare features a star system that gives each facility between 1 and 5 stars. The nursing home star ratings come from:
- Health inspections
- Quality of resident care measures
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) calculates a star rating for each of these 3 sources, along with an overall rating.
Why is this information important?
Nursing homes vary in the quality of care and services they provide to their residents. Health inspection results, staffing data, and quality of resident care information are 3 important ways to measure the quality of a nursing homes. This information, combined in the star rating, gives you a “snapshot” of the quality of each nursing home.
Using the star rating with other information
The star rating system can give you important information and help you compare nursing homes by topics you consider most important, but isn’t a substitute for visiting the nursing home. Use the star ratings together with other sources of information, and review the Guide to Choosing a Nursing Home and the Nursing Home Checklist to help you think of questions to ask when you visit the nursing home and determine whether a nursing home fits you or your family members’ needs.
