Riverside County Nursing Homes

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Service maintains detailed records concerning all nursing home and skilled care facilities under its authority, including the 200+ such facilities within and around Riverside County, California. The CMS compiles its own data and data from other sources into the Nursing Home Compare tool, which provides members of the public with critical information about the quality of nursing home care in their region.

The CMS gathers its own data through periodic surveys of nursing homes and skilled care facilities. These data include citations issued for health and safety code violations; resident complaints and investigations into them; facility ownership information; the size and makeup of each facility’s staff; resident census data; information concerning each facility’s quality of care, such as the percentage of residents who suffer falls with a major injury and the percentage of residents who receive flu and pneumococcal vaccinations; and more.

Other sources of data used by the Nursing Home Compare system are the Payroll-Based Journal System, the Minimum Data Set National Database, and the Medicare Claims Database. These provide data on nursing home staff, resident health information, and billing figures, respectively. The Nursing Home Compare tool uses these data to assign every nursing home under its authority a star rating, with higher ratings corresponding to greater quality: ⅕ stars, or Much Below Average; ⅖ stars, or Below Average; ⅗ stars, or Average; ⅘ stars, or Above Average; and 5/5 stars, or Much Above Average. For more information, visit the Nursing Home Compare tool at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services website here.

It is important to note that none of the scores are intended to be an endorsement or condemnation by the CMS or Walton Law APC.

Chris, I wish to express my deepest gratitude for the man who changed my opinion of lawyers, forever. Your hard work, your knowledge & expertise, your guidance and your compassionate kindness helped us through the toughest of times and those aspects didn’t go unnoticed. Dave

If you're looking for an honest, compassionate, realistic lawyer that will fight hard for you then Christopher Walton is your man. He will always return your calls and will never promise you something that he cannot deliver on. In my personal situation Mr. Walton was able to explain the legal process to me with guidance along the way. I am grateful for his support and his hard work on my case. Mr. Walton and his staff are true professionals! Phillip

I was in a bike accident in 2015, and Chris could not have been a better advocate for myself and for my family. He always emailed and spoke with me on the phone at every step in the process. He let me know my options whenever a decision had to be made, and reassured that the process would take care of it self. He did everything in his power to get the best and largest settlement he could. I now understand and deeply respect everything Chris did for me. Jeffrey
★★★★★
Chris, you made me feel like you were more than "just my attorney" and that's something I could never repay you. You rarely see that quality in people these days which is why I'm sure you'll always be at the pinnacle of everything you do professionally and personally! John
