The redesign of the federal Nursing Home Compare website, which lets consumers file complaints more easily and compare facilities based on quality measures, is complete.
- pain levels as reported by residents
- the use of physical restraints
- self-reported falls
- pressure ulcer rates
- measures of general well-being.
The site will also publish data about the number of civil money penalties and similar enforcement actions against a nursing home over the last three years. The site will “freeze” quality measure data and the Five Star quality measure ratings currently on the website for a period of six months. Regulators will be collecting quality measure data from the new MDS 3.0 resident assessment tool during this time.
