Congrats, Top Performers!

Nursing homes that achieved a composite score of six or less were recently recognized by the IIPC National Coordinating Center as high performers. Eight (of 78) nursing homes in Idaho and 23 (of 224) in Washington achieved this distinction.

Remember: As described in the October edition, CMS has set a goal that at least 50% of all nursing homes will achieve a composite score of 6 or less by January 2019. Learn more about the composite score by reviewing these FAQs.
