Nursing Home Ratings

JAMA. 2009;301(6):590. doi:10.1001/jama.2009.93

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has released quality ratings for the 15 800 nursing homes participating in Medicare or Medicaid. The facilities are awarded stars, from a low of 1 to a high of 5, based on health inspection surveys, staffing information, and quality-of-care measures.

The initial ratings were posted December 18 and are available online at CMS's Nursing Home Compare Web site (http://www.medicare.gov/NHCompare/home.asp).
