California nursing homes to begin posting federal star ratings

Dec 26, 2010 3:00:00 AM - latimes.com
The state is first in the nation to mandate the posting of rankings on a 1 to 5 scale, which are designed to evaluate and compare the quality of care at 1,235 facilities.

Patients and visitors at California nursing homes will be greeted with something new come the new year: publicly posted ratings of each facility. The federal ratings give facilities one to five stars depending on quality of care, much like restaurants display letter grades evaluating health and safety compliance.
