Forty percent of all nursing home residents live in one- or two-star facilities (as reported by the Kaiser Family Foundation in May of 2015), and recent changes in the rating system have made reaching the top even more difficult. “According to U.S.A. Today, nearly one third of the nation’s nursing homes are getting lower scores,” said Guttenberg Care Center Administrator Dr. Janette Simon. “Only 22 percent of the 15,505 nursing homes in the U.S. are five-star rated. Iowa is among the highest rated in the country.”
