CMS releases nursing home COVID-19 data and inspection results
The first round of COVID-19 data collected from nursing homes is now available on Nursing Home Compare. The data shows that as of May 31, about 13,600 (88%) of Medicare and Medicaid nursing homes had reported the required data to the CDC. Within these facilities, there are over 95,000 confirmed COVID-19 cases, and almost 32,000 deaths. CMS will release the second round of data in two weeks, and weekly after that.
In addition, CMS has released the results of targeted inspections for 5,700 of the 8,300 inspections that have taken place since March 4. CMS plans to post the results of these inspections monthly.
