Long-Term Care / Skilled Nursing Facilities have a star rating system that gives each facility a rating between 1 and 5 stars. The nursing home star ratings come from:
Quality of resident care measures
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) regularly gathers information from surveys and calculates a star rating for each of these 3 sources, along with an overall rating.
Not Yet Rated
Not all senior care providers have a star rating. For services such as nursing homes or home health care providers, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) regularly monitors these providers and calculates a star rating based on their findings.
