Family Satisfaction Survey


The Maryland Health Care Commission conducts a family satisfaction survey called the Nursing Home Family Experience of Care Survey. The results of the survey are available to assist Marylanders in choosing a nursing home. We ask family members of nursing home residents to answer several questions, and we group the responses into 7 domains:


  1. Staff and Administration of the Nursing Home
  2. Care Provided to Residents
  3. Food and Meals
  4. Autonomy and Residents’ Rights
  5. Physical Aspects of the Nursing Home
  6. Activities
  7. Security and Resident’s Personal Rights

We also report two overall measures of satisfaction:


  1. Overall satisfaction
  2. Percentage of family member who definitely or probably would recommend this nursing home.

Staffing for this nursing home


CMS Star Rating - Overall Staffing: CMS assigns a star rating between 1 and 5 based on the nursing home’s staffing for registered nurses (RN), licensed practical/vocational nurses (LPN/LVN) and certified nurse assistants (CNA). More stars means a better level of staffing per nursing home resident. This star rating takes into account that some nursing homes have sicker residents and may therefore need more staff than other nursing homes whose residents are not as sick.


Staffing Hours: Staffing information is reported to CMS by the nursing home.


Staff Retention: The table below shows the percentage of hours worked at the nursing home by direct care staff who have been employed for two years or longer. In general, a higher percentage is desirable.
