A USA Today article titled Feds Rate U.S. Nursing Homes reveals that non-profit facilities fared better than for-profit ones, but that the overall quality of homes left a lot to be desired.

Nationally, 23 percent of the nursing homes rated achieved just a “one-star” ranking overall (out of five). The ratings site, Nursing Home Compare is administered by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, part of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). Nearly 16,000 nursing homes are included on the rankings site, which focuses on facilities that are certified to participate in Medicare or Medicaid. Both for-profit and non-profit homes are ranked.
