Fresno Nursing Home Ratings
Families who are looking for nursing home care (skilled nursing care) for a loved one must consider how the number and types of staff will affect the care their loved one needs. Understaffing in nursing homes has been a widespread complaint across the United States. The federal government has recently expressed concerns about lack of staffing in nursing homes, especially on nights and weekends. The federal government has ordered states to conduct more inspections on weekends to crackdown on this problem.

The following chart provides information on nursing home staffing levels in Fresno County. Staffing is influenced by may factors. Some of the factors include facility size (the number of residents), and the overall level of care the residents need. The chart includes information on the number of hours per resident for registered nurses (RN), Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs), and Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs). Persons who have higher care needs may want to consider skilled nursing facilities with higher RN hours per resident.
