What are some other ways I can find out about nursing home quality?
Visit the nursing homes you're considering, if possible, or have someone visit for you.
Call your state health department or state licensing agency. Ask if they have written information on the quality of care given in local nursing homes. You can ask for a copy of the full survey or the last complaint investigation report.
Look at survey findings (CMS Form 2567) for the facility. They can be found at each nursing home, typically in the lobby area. Or, you can also look at survey findings when you compare nursing homes.
