Inspection Results

Each year, an inspection is carried out by the Regional Liaison Officers to ensure that the services offered by a nursing home meet the official requirements. The Department of Social Development brings in the inspecting officers. The examinations are usually a surprise, and their completion can take a couple of days. Besides yearly evaluations from the Department of Social Development, they can also make an extra visit if there are contentions about the well-being of nursing home residents. For evaluating the situation and taking suitable action, a follow-up visit can be made.

Moreover, yearly inspections are performed by the Department of Health Office of the Chief Medical Officer of Health (Public Health) and the Department of Public Safety inspection services, including the Office of the Fire Marshal as well. As the checks take place annually, they should always be updated before the issuance or renewal of licenses of nursing homes.

Popular questions at Brighton Ridge

Who pays for nursing home if you have no money?

For many people, the high costs of a nursing home are far outside of their monthly budget. If you don’t have the money to pay for a nursing home, Medicaid will be the best option in most cases. Medicare requirements are determined by state governments and can differ based on where you live, but your income will need to be under a certain amount in order to qualify. In most cases, you will also be required to sell any property that you aren’t living in and sell any existing investments you have before you can qualify for Medicaid coverage.

How to pay for nursing home?

  • Medicare provides some coverage for nursing facilities, but you will still be left with out-of-pocket expenses. Medicare covers 100 days at a skilled nursing facility per benefit period. In some cases, Medicare can also cover 35 hours per week of home health services.
  • Medicaid assistance levels differ between states. Veterans and their spouses may also be eligible for extended assistance benefits – veterans themselves may qualify for as much as $1,794 per month in assistance for nursing home costs.
  • Many people choose to pay their nursing home fees with long-term care insurance. Long-term care insurance is designed to cover nursing homes, assisted living, and other ongoing healthcare needs. Some types of life insurance also provide a way to access your death benefit to pay for long-term medical coverage as needed.

What is the average cost of a nursing home by state?
