New NPR Nursing Home Database Offers Insights Into Independence Levels Of Patients By State & Facility

National Public Radio (NPR) recently released an two interactive functions that allows families to see both the independence levels for specific nursing homes and also to see the independence levels for individual states.

Insights Into Independence Levels Of PatientsThese functions can be particularly useful for families looking for a facility for a loved one because this feature provides information regarding functional level of patients at specific facilities such as:

  • Dressing
  • Bathing
  • Eating
  • Walking
  • Using the toilet

The data on each nursing home was obtained by NPR via the Freedom of Information Act.

A second interactive feature allows families to see the independence levels of other nursing home patients throughout the specific state.

As a nursing home lawyer who frequently gets asked, “Is this facility any good?” I will be happy to pass this website along to my clients who are looking for assistance selecting a nursing home.

Client Reviews

  • Having worked in the medical field, I appreciated the way that Mr. Rosenfeld and his staff approached my family’s situation. The combination of medical knowledge and legal expertise was indeed the winning combination for our case.
  • While nothing can change the way our mother was treated at a nursing facility, I do feel a sense of vindication that the facility was forced to pay for their treatment. I am certain that they would never have done had my attorneys not held their feet to the fire.
  • I was very nervous about initiating a claim against my mother’s nursing facility, but Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers took care of everything from getting the medical records to going to court. I felt like I had real advocates on my side. That meant a lot to me.
  • After a horrific episode at a nursing home, my sister and I spoke to a number of law firms. No one took the time to answer our questions and explain the legal process like Mr. Rosenfeld. He did a tremendous job on our case and I can see why he’s earned the praise he has from clients and peers.
  • I liked the fact that I could call the office and ask questions about the legal process at anytime. I could tell that my case was in good hands. I think that this was reflected in my father’s settlement was more than I anticipated the case ever being worth.
