CMS posts enhanced measures on Nursing Home Compare
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has posted an enhanced set of quality measures, 11 for chronic care and three for post-acute care, on the Nursing Home Compare Web site.
The site, also available in Spanish, now allows consumers to search for nursing homes by distance from a city or ZIP code and by nursing home name. Those who are interested may print maps and directions for the nursing homes they select.
Nursing Home Compare was launched in 2002 at www.medicare.gov.
