2018 Good and Poor Performance Trends
Kansas Advocates for Better Care (KABC) annually releases information on performance trends in Kansas nursing facilities. KABC tracks and reports information on health and safety compliance in long-term care as a public service. The following is a review of Kansas nursing facility inspection performance trends – good and poor – in meeting defined health and care standards for older Kansans. To compile this list, KABC reviewed the past three health safety inspections for all 344 nursing facilities, long-term care units, and nursing facilities for mental health in the state. Facilities which did not meet the criteria for good or poor performance trends will not appear on the lists.
