Data on nursing homes comes primarily from the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) website Nursing Home Compare. The source of any other data is noted on the web page where it is found. The CMS data changes monthly giving a current update on the care and status of all U.S. nursing homes that are enrolled in the Medicare or Medicaid programs. We strongly urge you to use the information on the CMS website when selecting a nursing home and to frequently monitor the care in a nursing home where you or a loved one reside. The first choice in the list below gives instructions in how to use the Nursing Home Compare website.
