Nursing home response to Nursing Home Compare: the provider perspective.
This paper examined the validity of quality ratings of nursing homes with Nursing Home Compare (NHC) and assessed the views of nursing home administrators and staff. There was a conflict found between improving ratings and competing goals of maximizing profits and avoidance of litigation. Since the NHC is self-reported there is controversy on its validity due to self-reporting bias.
