According to US News & World Report, In a typical year, about 3.2 million Americans will spend at least some time in a nursing home. To help find a good choice from among the nation’s more than 15,500 homes, U.S. News created America’s Best Nursing Homes – a list of the roughly 15,000 best nursing homes from throughout the country. You can search by name of the nursing home, by state, city or by zip code.

Once the search has been conducted, a report is generated with all of the homes which fit your search criteria. Each home is given an overall rating, a rating for health inspections, nursing staff and quality measures. The report also provides a link to a full, more detailed report of each home. You can access the search online here.
