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.
These 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:
- 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.
