Is there a link between nursing home reported quality and COVID-19 cases? Evidence from California skilled nursing facilities.

He M, Li Y, Fang F. J Am Med Dir Assoc. 2020;21(7):905-908.

This study combined quality ratings from Nursing Home Compare with state-level data to examine the association between nursing home-reported quality and COVID-19 cases and deaths. After adjusting for nursing home size and the racial composition of the residents, results indicate that nursing homes with higher ratings were less likely to experience COVID-19 cases and deaths.
