Nursing Home Ratings By State
When families are searching for a nursing home facility to place their loved ones in, it is important to conduct research on the available options. Websites such as Medicare.gov provide information about nursing homes to help families make their decision.
List of Negligent Nursing Homes
KBA Attorneys has compiled ratings for nursing homes in the following states: Florida, Georgia, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. All of these nursing homes were previously listed in an undisclosed report released by Pennsylvania Senators Pat Toomey and Bob Casey. The information in this report detailed nearly 400 nursing homes that had a persistent record of mistreatment and negligence. The federal government withheld this information from the public for years, despite inspectors continuously reporting unsafe and unhealthy living conditions.
The ratings below were taken from the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
About the Nursing Home Ratings
Overall Rating – CMS has given each nursing home an overall score based on other ratings.
Health Inspections – CMS calculates this rating based on recent citations. Inspections are conducted once a year by state inspectors, however additional inspections may be done if there is a complaint submitted by a resident or family member.
Staffing – CMS calculates this rating based on the ratio of nursing staff to residents. There are two measures to be considered: the number of Registered Nurse hours per resident per day and the total staffing hours per resident per day.
Quality Measures – CMS calculates this rating based on three quality of resident care ratings (short-stay quality measure rating, long-stay measure rating, and overall measure rating). Points from each measure are totaled and the nursing home is given a rating based on the thresholds for each type of quality measure rating.
Special Focus Facility (SFF) – This indicates that a nursing home has had consistent violations of health and safety regulations. Special Focus Facilities are given double the number of inspections by federal officials.
