The Tennessee Department of Health has posted on its website thousands of pages of inspection reports on Tennessee nursing homes.
The Affordable Care Act passed under President Obama required that the reports be more accessible to consumers.
The new postings include one year of reports for each licensed facility. Eventually, four years of reports will be included.
The increased availability of these reports will help Tennesseans make more informed decisions about which nursing home to choose for a loved one and also monitor the quality of care given in the facility.
