This site nursinghomes.nyhealth.gov provides information about nursing homes in New York State and the quality of care they provide. The quality measures data are from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. These quality measures are among the most reliable, but measuring quality is difficult because of the variation among nursing homes in the complexity of residents they care for. Use this information to ask questions of nursing home representatives and health care professionals, as well as family members and friends who may have direct experience with a particular nursing home. After reviewing this important information, we urge you to visit nursing homes in which you are interested.
