The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced this week the implementation of a new rating system for nursing homes. Nursing homes will soon be rated on a 5-star scale, similar to the way hotels and restaurants are currently rated by critics, with one star being the lowest rating and five stars the highest possible rating. The new system is designed to assist families in determining the best facilities in their area. The new system will appear on Medicare’s “Nursing Home Compare” Web site, hopefully before the end of 2008.
