Nursing Home Report Card

Families for Better Care, a non-profit citizens advocacy group working to improve conditions in our nation's nursing homes and long term care facilities, has published a state-by-state report card for nursing homes. Pennsylvania earned an overall C grade and placed 26th in the rankings. Data was collected from the Kaiser Family Foundation, CMS's Nursing Home Compare, and complaint data from the Office of State Long-term Care Ombudsmen. Scores are averaged for the entire state; individual nursing homes are not listed. For more information on what information was included in the grades and how other states were ranked go to the groups website.
