Data as of March 17, 2024

The City Level Skilled Nursing Home Analysis Report

Recently, the Biden administration announced a goal of improving nursing home care, as highlighted in several important announcements (see the initial announcement and a subsequent announcement). While this is a commendable goal, it is not entirely clear what the best approach is for achieving it. Proposing minimum staffing levels for all nursing homes simplifies a complicated issue. Nursing Homes address a wide range of resident needs, from short-term rehabilitation to long-term care to dementia and memory issues, that require different levels of care. It also fails to address a national staffing shortage that will likely only worsen.

At NursingHomeDatabase.com, we believe that one critical element of any improvement effort is to have access to good, clear data and analysis that can help everyone understand the current state of affairs, identify trends, and track progress over time. To this end, we have built this series of reports that will try to illuminate the key metrics of nursing home performance for each state. Our reports are designed to provide valuable insights and inform policymakers, healthcare providers, and families who are interested in nursing home care.

The analysis for the state level report cards of nursing home care is primarily derived from data that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid ("CMS") provides. CMS publishes weekly data about nursing home occupancy and COVID-19 infections and publishes monthly reports with ratings, staffing levels, and deficiencies.
