Nursing Home Deficiencies Data

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services makes publicly available the full-text statements of nursing home deficiencies. The linked data set is a zip file that contains 10 Excel files -- one for each region of the country. ProPublica has been using this data to power the Nursing Home Inspect tool since August 2012. This data also supported ProPublica reporting that found that government fails to ensure consistent penalties for nursing homes in different states.
