Biggest nursing home outbreaks of COVID-19 in every state

  • Biggest nursing home outbreaks of COVID-19 in every state

    The COVID-19 pandemic has ravaged nursing homes across the country. Over 30,000 deaths related to the disease have been reported in nursing homes and long-term care centers across the country as of June 4, 2020, according to representatives from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) speaking at a press conference that day. The number of deaths is likely to be higher as it only accounts for 88% of nursing homes registered by CMS.

    To determine the biggest COVID-19 outbreaks in nursing homes in every U.S. state, Stacker consulted data from the CMS Nursing Home Compare database, released on June 4. These data reflect COVID-19 cases and deaths in nursing homes as of May 31. We have also supplemented these data with the total numbers of cases and deaths in each state as of June 3, via the COVID Tracking Project.

    There are a couple of limitations to note in the data: First, there may be some errors or fluctuations in the data entry; and second, some nursing homes had data issues and therefore are in the system but not included in the dataset. In compiling this story, Stacker only considered facilities for which COVID-19 data reporting was up to CMS’ standards. In addition, CMS has a different reporting methodology than state health departments, many of which have also been reporting data on COVID-19 in nursing homes for the past several weeks, so numbers may differ between these sources.

    The coronavirus outbreak through nursing homes is the latest in a series of issues plaguing long-term care facilities. Infection control violations top the list of problems cited during nursing home inspections in the last year, per Medicare.gov. On June 1, President Trump released updates to the enforcement of infection control practices for nursing homes that have violated such regulations.

    The preparedness of nursing homes to prevent and confront COVID-19 vary wildly by state and facility, which has led to numerous outbreaks and failed responses by governments and nursing home facilities themselves. Keep reading to find out where the biggest nursing home outbreaks of COVID-19 are in every state.
