Nursing Home Quality
LeadingAge and our members are dedicated to achieving excellence in quality of care and quality of life. We work closely with the Advancing Excellence in Nursing Homes Campaign and we even created our own program called Quality First.
Nonprofit nursing homes tend to earn higher ratings on the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Nursing Home 5-Star Rating System than their for-profit counterparts, according to a recent report by the Kaiser Family Foundation.
The National Quality Forum (NQF) is launching a new initiative to create a
framework for quality measurement for persons living in the community
who receive home and community-based services (HCBS).
