Nursing Home Compare is a website managed by the federal government that has detailed information about every Medicare and Medicaid-certified nursing home in the country. It contains quality of care and staffing information for all 15,000 plus Medicare- and Medicaid-participating nursing homes. The staffing data from the Payroll-Based Journal will eventually end up on Nursing Home Compare.
