Nursing Home Info Now Online

Jefferson City, MO – Missourians can now access information on the state's nursing homes via the Internet.

Information about long-term facilities, including nursing homes, can be found at the site. It includes information about latest inspection, including whether the home had any violations and whether the violations were corrected.

Last fall, Governor Bob Holden ordered the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services to place the information on the agency's Internet site.

Holden says nursing home reform will be a top legislative priority during the session that begins Wednesday.
