FINDING THE RIGHT NURSING HOME MADE EASIER – CMS IMPLEMENTED NEW TOOL IN OCTOBER 2019
A woman pushing an elderly woman in a wheelchair through the grassAccording to a press release issued by the Trump Administration and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) on October 7, 2019, CMS has enhanced its Nursing Home Compare website.  The website now displays a consumer alert icon next to nursing homes that have been cited for incidents of abuse, neglect or exploitation.  The Nursing Home Compare website displays an array of information about nursing homes – including whether a facility meets federal standards with respect to health and safety compliance inspections, staffing levels and quality measure performance.  With the enhancement, patients, residents and their families are able to quickly identify nursing homes with past citations for abuse.  Beginning October 23, 2019, the new alert icon will flag facilities cited on inspection reports for (1) abuse that led to harm of a resident within the past year and (2) abuse that could have potentially led to harm of a resident in each of the last two years.  The icon will be updated monthly.  CMS Administrator Seema Verma praised the enhancement as “putting critical information at consumers’ fingertips, empowering them and incentivizing nursing homes to compete on cost and quality.”
