Title VI. Transparency and Program Integrity
Making Nursing Home Choices with Information about Quality and Safety
Americans will have more information so they can make better choices about nursing facilities under the Act.
The “Nursing Home Compare” Medicare website will be updated with information about: staffing, links to State internet websites concerning State nursing facility surveys and certification, a model standardized complaint form, a summary of complaints for facilities and the number of instances of criminal violations by a facility or its employee.
To increase transparency, the Act requires that skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) under Medicare and nursing facilities (NFs) under Medicaid make available all of their information concerning the facilities’ ownership.
