Nursing home ratings come from:
A star rating is provided for each of these three sources, in case some areas are more important to you than others. Then, these
three ratings are combined to calculate an overall rating.
Nursing homes vary in the quality of care and services they provide to their residents. Reviewing health inspection results, staffing
data, and quality measure data are three important ways to measure nursing home quality. This information gives you a "snap shot" of
the care individual nursing homes give.
The Five Star Quality Rating System is not a substitute for visiting the nursing home. This system can give you important
information, help you compare nursing homes by topics you consider most important, and help you think of questions to ask when
you visit the nursing home. Use the Five-Star ratings together with other sources of information.
