CMS to Post COVID-19 Data on Nursing Home Compare
In a June 1st news release, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced that it will be posting COVID-19 data in a downloadable format on Nursing Home Compare later in the week. This data is derived from information that nursing homes have been reporting to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). It includes the state and the number of resident and staff cases and deaths related to COVID-19. The data, which CMS is planning to update weekly, will be searchable by the public.
