5-star Overall Medicare Rating

The overall star rating for nursing homes lets you compare nursing homes on topics you consider most important and gives you a “snapshot” of the quality of each nursing home. The rating, between 1 to 5 stars, combines results and data from 3 important sources, including:

  • Health inspections
  • Staffing
  • Quality measures

A star rating is calculated for each of these 3 sources, along with an overall rating.

How should I use the nursing home star ratings?

Star ratings can give you important information and help you compare nursing homes, but aren’t a substitute for visiting the nursing home. Use the star ratings together with other sources of information, and review our Nursing Home Checklist to help you think of questions to ask when you visit the nursing home and determine whether a nursing home fits your or your family member’s needs.
