Comparing Nursing Homes Using State Surveys

Step 3: At this point, you have the choice to search for a nursing home by either:

Select how you want to search. For purposes of this tutorial, I have clicked on “State”.

Step 4: Depending on which criteria you chose, specify your search criteria.

Then Click “Next Step”.

Then Click “Continue” to move to the next screen.

Step 6: This screen will pull up all the nursing homes listed in your search criteria. You can search up to 10 nursing homes by Clicking on the Box next to each nursing home. Then click “Next Step” at the bottom on the page.
