Not all nursing homes are created equally. One database uses inspection reports to explore the quality of these facilities nationwide.

ProPublica recently compiled a database that contains three years’ worth of nursing home inspection reports from the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The investigative news outlet then organized its data by state, grading nursing home facilities and even flagging ones that have a history of serious deficiencies that may jeopardize resident safety.

Take our quiz that draws on the database’s findings and see if you can guess where America’s nursing homes provide the best care and where others need to improve.
