Ratings tell a lot about the type of environment nursing home residents are exposed to.Many rely on ratings when choosing a facility they want their loved one to move into. While there are different ways a nursing home can be rated, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) uses its own to determine whether a facility is much below average, below average, average, above average, and much above average.
