It contains quality of care and staffing information for all 15,000 plus Medicare- and Medicaid-participating nursing homes. Nursing homes aren’t included in Nursing Home Compare if they aren’t Medicare- or Medicaid-certified. Facility are based on performance over 16 of the 24 measures based on MDS 3.0 assessments as well as hospital and emergency department claims.
