U.S. News has been publishing online ratings of nursing homes since 2009. The ranking method is based on information supplied by Nursing Home Compare, a website supported by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. This federal agency establishes and enforces the standards for skilled nursing facilities. Periodically, CMS evaluates the homes in three areas: state-conducted health inspections, nurse staffing and medical quality measures. Westside Terrace currently holds a five-star rating on the website.
