There have been quite a few newspaper ads placed by a Florida-based law firm that mentions a few local Pennsylvania Nursing Homes by name in an effort to sign up more elder abuse cases in our area. Their method is one whereby they view public reports on nursing home rankings and use those reports to fish for leads among Pennsylvania residents and their loved ones who are dependent upon a nursing home to provide care on a daily basis.

PA Nursing Home Rankings
As Pennsylvania nursing home abuse attorneys, we see too many cases of elder abuse and suffering that may have been avoided. We urge you to do your research before selecting a nursing home to be sure your loved one is well taken care of, or consider alternatives to nursing homes. Here are two very useful resources for how local Pennsylvania nursing home facilities are ranked & what criteria was used to determine the rankings.
Nursing Home Compare allows consumers to compare information about nursing homes. It contains quality of care information on every Medicare and Medicaid-certified nursing home in the country, including over 15,000 nationwide.
Ratings are from the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services for their overall performance in health inspections, nurse staffing and quality of medical care. About 25 percent of all nursing homes in Pennsylvania earned an overall five-star rating.
