Why 5-Star Ratings are Inadequate

Identical Performance is Rated Differently per State

5-star ratings are graded on a curve. This makes it difficult to rely on the rating without a deep understanding of the competitive landscape and nuances of every state.

Facilities with Higher Acuity Residents are Often Penalized

Even though facilities with higher acuity residents may have higher levels of staffing and better quality measure outcomes, their scores are often penalized due to 5-star rating methodology.

5-Star Doesn’t Cover Repeat Deficiencies

Deficient (and repeat) practices are indicative of inappropriate systems and oversight to monitor regulatory compliance.
