Accuracy of Nursing Home Compare Website's Reported Health, Fire Safety, and Emergency Preparedness Deficiencies
CMS's Nursing Home Compare website provides information on nursing homes that participate in the Medicare or Medicaid programs. CMS reports the information for consumers to research and make decisions when selecting a nursing home. Included in the information are a nursing home's quality ratings; the results of recent health, fire safety, and emergency preparedness inspections; staffing levels; quality-of-care measures; and penalties assessed by CMS. We will review the information reported on Nursing Home Compare and determine whether the information is accurate and can be relied upon by consumers to compare and select nursing homes.
