The Online Survey Certification and Reporting (OSCAR) is a network of statistics collected by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) from the state surveyors using data collected from nursing facilities at the time of the annual survey.
These reports feature information on several topics, including staffing levels, inspection results, and other statistics by state and type of ownership.
Using this data, our contractor prepares quarterly OSCAR reports that offer LeadingAge members and state affiliates a comprehensive overview of survey deficiency trends on regional, state, and national levels.
In an effort to continue to offer our members the latest and most valuable tools to help in advocacy work and internal review, LeadingAge is adding to our quarterly OSCAR reports.
Quarterly reports will now include 2 additional tables:
LeadingAge has also added a new feature that allows each member to access their own individualized OSCAR report. This individualized report is a 1-page summary statement of the facility’s specific data on staffing levels, inspection results, and other statistics compared to that of their states, regions and the country.

(*) Note that we have added 2 new tables to the OSCAR reports: Table 15: Average Number of Citations at G or Higher by State and Class of Ownership, and Table 16: Percentage-based Measures of Quality by State and Class of Ownership
Tables 10 and 11 are produced once a year and available on the Quarter 4 reports of each year.
The reports can help nursing home members identify areas of strength and weakness in the state. State associations can also used these quarterly reports to develop tailored educational outreach programs, workshops, and training sessions for nursing home members.
This data can also be useful in meetings with state-level regulatory officials and can be helpful in comparing the trends in facilities and/or trends of an entire state to the rest of the country.
These quarterly reports are FREE to LeadingAge members.
