COVID Vaccination Information Added to Medicare’s Nursing Home Compare Site

October 14, 2021
Geoff Hoatson

Individuals who are researching nursing homes can now see staff and resident vaccination rates along with other quality and safety measure information at Medicare’s Nursing Home Compare website.

The official Medicare website includes a nursing home rating system. Nursing Home Compare offers up to five-star ratings of nursing homes based on health inspections, staffing, and quality measures. Users can search for nursing homes by location and directly compare how they measure up.

In order to make COVID-19 vaccination information more available to the public, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has added staff and resident vaccination rates to the system. The compare site now shows what percentage of staff and residents are vaccinated against COVID-19 at each nursing home and lists the state and national averages, so users can see how the facility stacks up. According to the site, nationally, 84.1 percent of nursing home residents and 63.7 percent of staff are vaccinated. The information will be updated on a bi-weekly basis.
