The U.S. News & World Report rankings are built on data from Nursing Home Compare, a consumer web site run by the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

The data for Nursing Home Compare come from regular health inspections carried out by state agencies and from the homes themselves. Based on that information, CMS assigns an overall rating of one to five stars to all nursing homes. Homes are also given one to five stars in how well they do in the health inspections, in providing enough nurses, and providing a high level of quality of care.
