5-Star Nursing Home Rating System, September 2010

by Published On: Feb 06, 2012

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) 5-Star Nursing Home Rating System gives nursing homes participating in Medicare and Medicaid programs a star rating that varies from 1 to 5.

This rating is derived from 3 data sources: 

  1. Health survey inspections.
  2. Quality measures.
  3. The nurse staffing information from the most recent health survey inspection. 
The tables below show the separate star ratings under each of these domains.

These tables are produced using data files currently available on Nursing Home Compare, and are updated monthly. The latest update is: Sept. 24, 2010.
