Here’s what the CMS Five-Star Rating System rank means.
The Five-Star Quality Rating System is designed to help simplify the process of comparing nursing homes. It does so by highlighting areas you may want to review as you consider options for your loved one’s care.
This rating system gives each nursing home a rating of between 1 and 5 stars. Nursing homes with 5 stars are considered above average in quality, while those with 1 star are considered below average in quality. Each nursing home receives one overall 5-star rating and a separate rating for health inspections, quality measures and staffing.
