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.
Overall rating based on reviews from Google. The (5) most relevant reviews are displayed and provided by Google Reviews
Family Caregiver Summary Rating
The survey for family caregivers inquires about the hospice care received by their loved ones and queries whether they would suggest the hospice to others.
This survey's results are presented in a comparative format using a scale of five stars, where a higher number of stars reflects superior quality of care.
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.
