Website Summarizes Nursing Home Inspections
Consumers overwhelmed by the prospect of selecting a nursing home now have a new online tool to help them make choices based on government inspections.
Nursing Home Inspect 2.0 is a free database that helps users evaluate nursing homes in their area or anywhere in the country. ProPublica, a nonprofit investigative news organization, launched the updated site database today.
ProPublica first introduced the tool in August, but the new database has more features, including information about federal fines imposed on nearly 15,000 U.S. nursing homes.
