Health inspection ratings are based on the number, scope, and severity of deficiencies identified during the three most recent annual inspection surveys, as well as substantiated findings from the most recent 36 months of complaint investigations. All deficiency findings are weighted by scope and severity. This measure also takes into account the number of revisits required to ensure that deficiencies identified during the health inspection survey have been corrected.
A health citation is a finding that a nursing home failed to meet one or more federal health requirements during an annual health inspection or a complaint inspection. Inspectors identify health citations by observing the nursing home's performance, its practices, or the conditions in the facility.
Staff ratings are based on nursing home staffing levels. They are based on two measures: (1) Registered nurse hours per resident per day and (2) Total nurse staffing (registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, and nurse aides) hours per resident per day.
