The Nursing Home InspectorTM Rankings Page displays homes within a selected area A. The selected State and County, City or Zip are displayed along with the total number of homes in the selected area and the ones being viewed (ie: 1-10, 11-20, 21-30, etc.). Selecting the next or previous group of homes (if more than 10 are available ) is done at the bottom of the page using the arrow buttons.
Members with a 3 or 6 month membership have the option of displaying the results using our Advanced Matrix Tool (AMT) B.
Our AMT displays homes ranked in order, in a "grid" format with the data for each category displayed in individual columns for analysis.

Individual Rank/Sort Options:
The Facility Name sort option displays the homes sorted by facility name alphabetically. This option does not rank the homes by any criteria. A Blue Arrow appears in front of the "Nursing Home" title to indicate results are sorted by Name.
Results sorted by Deficiency Rank are sorted in order by each facility's overall rank compared to all others within the state as a percentile. The deficiency bar turns red and is flagged with a blue arrow to indicate how the results are sorted.
The rankings compare the most recent inspection data for each facility. Results sorted by a ranking criteria are always listed in order with the "best" scores first. Higher Scores are Always Better.
A facility with a 100% ranking is among the "best" in the state by that criteria. A facility with a 50% ranking is about average among all the facilities within the selected state.
If the average deficiency score within the state was 20 points, then all facilities with total deficiency points of 20 would show a 50 percentile ranking (50% = state average). All facilities with less than 20 points would display above the 50 percentile ranking, up to a maximum of 100% (best).
Results sorted by Staff Rank are sorted in order by each facility's overall rank compared to all others within the state as a percentile. The Staff bar turns red and is flagged with a blue arrow to indicate how the results are sorted.
If the average staffing for all facilities within the state is 10 hours per day per resident, then all facilities with double that number (20) or better would show a 100 percentile (100%) ranking meaning it is among the top ranked facilities by this measure. All facilities with 10 hours would show a 50 percentile ranking (50% = state average), and facilities with less than 10 hours per day per resident would be lower than the 50 percentile ranking accordingly.
Results sorted by Resident Condition Rank are sorted in order by each facility's overall rank compared to all others within the state as a percentile. The Staff bar turns red and is flagged with a blue arrow to indicate how the results are sorted.
If the average overall percentage of residents with the specified conditions for the state was 30, then any facility with no residents inflicted would show a 100 percentile (100%) ranking. A facility with 30 percent of residents inflicted would show 50 percentile ranking (50% = state average), and any facility with more than double the state average (60 percent or more inflicted) would show as 0% ranking.
The ranking percentiles described above are calculated for ranking purposes only. They are not found within the individual facility report pages.
The individual reports for each facility are selected by clicking one of the report option icons located to the right side of each facility.
The "SnapShot" report is a summary graphic display of a home's performance for each of the three main categories (Deficiencies, Staffing, Resident Condition) compared to the County average, State average, and National (USA) average. The total deficiency scores are also displayed by inspection date.
The "Detail" report displays the same graphs as the summary along with all the supporting details for all measures.
The "Print" report is identical to the Detailed report except that it is formatted to fit on printed pages with 0.5" margins. It does not include the Navigation Header or Side Menu Bar and is 7+ pages long.
The "Directions" option brings-up a new browser window directed to Google.com which will display a zoom-in/zoom-out map and directions to the facility.
