Finding the right nursing home is difficult, but a great tool is knowing what violations the government has found during inspections. But finding this information can be difficult. That’s why we’ve made it easy for you. We compiled inspection data from the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services for nursing homes across the country and made it searchable by facility name, or zip code, if you want to check out several facilities in a geographic area.

DIRECTIONS: Search via Zip, City or Facility. Click the date to see detailed information.
