Gold Stars have found their place outside of a child’s classroom. In fact gold stars will now be used to rank nursing home safety and nursing home care levels. The Nursing Home Compare Website will soon feature the rankings to allow Americans to determine which nursing homes are safe and which nursing homes have experienced nursing home neglect and nursing home abuse issues. Nursing home inspections over the past 3 years will be reviewed to determine the home’s ranking between a level of one star (the lowest) to five stars (the highest).
