Nursing Home Ratings Help Families Make Decisions On Best Home For Their Family

When looking at nursing home options, one should consider the ratings of the facility. The ratings cover a spectrum of criteria for a nursing home and provide a review for the public. "It's based on a system that looks at staffing, surveys, the results of our inspections, what's called quality indicator information, the nurse staffing levels. They combine all those numbers to determine what the nursing home rating will be," said a quality assurance inspector.

Local ombudsmen also help in reporting information to help with rating homes by personal inspections and information provided by the public. These could be individuals that have had positive or negative experiences to give an accurate reading of the care provided at a facility. For more, read the story.
