ALERT! CMS Announces Changes to Nursing Home Compare

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced Monday that Nursing Home Compare (NHC) will flag skilled nursing centers that have been cited for abuse, neglect and exploitation starting October 23, 2019. Nursing centers will receive an alert icon on NHC if it falls into one of these two categories: 

  1. If a nursing center has been cited for abuse that led to harm (G or above) in the last year for one of three abuse F-tags; or

  2. If a nursing center has been cited for abuse with the potential for harm (D and above) in each of the last two years.

The abuse and neglect citations that will result in an icon are as follows:

  1. F600: Free from abuse and neglect

  2. F602: Free from misappropriation/exploitation

  3. F603: Free from involuntary seclusion

After a nursing center has been free for a full year or inspection cycle from any of these three citations, the icon will be removed. The NHC will update the website monthly with new information.
