Complexity

Nursing Home Compare allows consumers to compare information about nursing homes. 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. These Nursing Homes can be licensed by the state.

The nursing homes that are shown in Nursing Home Compare provide a level of care called “skilled” care. Skilled care is care given when you need skilled nursing or rehabilitation staff to manage, observe, or evaluate your care. Examples of skilled care include intravenous (IV) injections and physical therapy.

Nursing Home Compare includes information on:
i. 5-star quality ratings of individual or overall performance on health inspections, quality measures, and hours of care provided per resident by staff performing nursing care tasks.
ii. Health and fire-safety inspections with detailed and summary information about deficiencies found during the 3 most recent comprehensive inspections (conducted annually) and the last 3 years of complaint investigations.
iii. Nursing home staffing information about the number of registered nurses, licensed practical or vocational nurses, physical therapists and nursing assistants in each nursing home.
iv. A set of quality measures that describe the quality of care in nursing homes including % of residents with pressure sore, % of residents with urinary incontinence and more.
v. Penalties against a nursing home.
