Quality Ratings are issued based upon an evaluation of the quality of services
provided by the facility. This evaluation takes place as a part of the licensing survey.
On March 16, 2003, new rules went into effect for Nursing Care Institutions.
For licensing surveys conducted after March 16, 2003, the Quality Ratings are: "A," "B," "C," or "D" based
upon the number of points (ranging from 1-100) that the facility receives in the evaluation:
"A" for Excellent = a score of 90 to 100 points
"B" = a score of 80 to 89 points
"C" = a score of 70 to 79 points
"D" = a score of 69 or fewer points
NOTE: If the facility has "Not Applicable" instead of a Quality Rating of "A" through "D",
it means that the survey has been completed but a change in the Quality Rating may occur. The
Quality Rating of “Not Applicable” will remain in effect until the license is issued and a new
Quality Rating is assigned.
Information regarding how Quality Ratings of "A" through "D" are
assigned can be obtained by clicking on the following link:
