Nursing Home Quality Initiative

Nursing Home Quality Initiative

The New York State Nursing Home Quality Initiative (NHQI) is an annual quality and performance evaluation project to improve the quality of care for residents in Medicaid-certified nursing facilities across New York State. The current NHQI is based on the previous calendar year´s performance. Nursing homes are awarded points for quality and performance measures in the components of Quality, Compliance, and Efficiency. Specific deficiencies cited during the health inspection survey process are also incorporated into the results. The points for all measures are then summed to create an overall score for each facility. Facilities are ranked into quintiles based on their overall scores. Quintile one represents the top-performing facilities, while quintile five represents the lowest-performing. The measures, components and the points may vary by each NHQI year. The methodology specific to each NHQI year will have further details.

The section below contains information and results for each year of the NHQI. The Methodology and NHQI Quintile Ranking documents are available in webpage view and can also be downloaded. When downloaded, the quintile ranking documents contain the following worksheets:

  • nursing facilities in each of the five quintiles
  • nursing facilities with certain deficiencies cited during the health inspection survey process
  • nursing facilities that are excluded from the NHQI for various reasons

The nursing facilities in each worksheet are sorted alphabetically. All facilities within a quintile are considered to be the same in terms of quality and performance. Please refer to the methodology for more information about the ineligibility and exclusion criteria.
