This Medicare page lets you compare nursing home care by government rating. State and federal agencies routinely survey, inspect, and rate nursing homes on the care they provide. Medicare compiles these findings into a nursing home comparison report, which you may find helpful in selecting a home. This report details the number of inspection deficiencies a nursing home had during the most recent inspection, as well as the type and severity of each problem. Pay attention to the number of violations each nursing home commits, but be sure to notice the nature of any problem - as you know, some are far more serious than others.

The real cost of the nursing home isn’t simply how much your insurance will pay but whether your loved one will be the victim of abuse or neglect. Please visit your loved one often, drop in unannounced, and talk with the administrator and the staff. If you suspect nursing home abuse or neglect, call 877-ABUSE-AD today or email us.
