Measures that will be added to Nursing Home Compare are:

  • Percent of residents who develop new or worsened pressure ulcers;
  • Percentage of residents whose activities of daily living and thinking skills were assessed and related goals were included in their treatment plan;
  • Percentage of residents who experience one or more falls with major injury;
  • Medicare spending per resident beneficiary; and
  • Rate of successful return to home or community.
