The Report Card system was developed to help you make your choice of a nursing home based on the results of recent Indiana State Department of Health surveys. Using the Report Card score, you can evaluate and compare facilities in five categories: Administration, Care and Services, Resident Rights, Dietary and Environment. Individual scores for each of the last three survey periods are shown, and an overall score is calculated. The average score of all Indiana facilities is also shown. You can use these reports to compare a nursing home’s performance to itself over the previous three annual health surveys, compare its score to the calculated statewide average, or to compare it to the performance of other nursing homes. Scores are recalculated monthly.
Remember: the lower the score, the better the rating.
Please note: The portion of IN.gov related to searching/displaying nursing home report card scores has now been combined with the search feature for locating other medical facilities.
About Indiana State Department of Health Surveys: The Indiana State Department of Health, Long Term Care Division, inspects nursing homes at least every 9-15 months to assess compliance with federal standards of care such as adequacy of staffing, quality of care, and cleanliness of facilities. In addition, as necessary, the Division investigates complaints and serious incidents occurring within a nursing home. Surveys are unannounced and if standards are not met, then the nursing home must submit a plan of correction to the Division.
