According to U.S. News & World Report, the data behind ‘Best Nursing Homes’ come from Nursing Home Compare, a website run by the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), which sets and enforces standards for nursing homes enrolled in Medicare or Medicaid. CMS also collects information from states and individual homes and assigns each home a rating of one to five stars in each of three categories: state-conducted health inspections, nursing and physical therapy staffing, and quality of medical care.  The ratings are combined to produce an overall rating of one to five stars.”
