While ratings for many of its nursing homes were subpar last spring, the VA is reporting it has made drastic improvements for the same time period this year. The VA posted its full list of rankings here.
The VA said there are 11 nursing homes with the lowest rating - a decrease from about 60 facilities with that rating last year. The VA said it continues to improve its facilities.
The VA said its disclosure of the ratings aligns with its efforts to be more transparent, but it follows persistent requests from reporters from USA Today and The Boston Globe, who had been making requests to the VA dating back to at least 2017.
