Further information on Wisconsin nursing homes, including federal citations, can be accessed via the Wisconsin Consumer Information Reports and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Nursing Home Compare (exit DHS) sites.

Do not make your decision about a nursing home based only on this information. Gather as much information as you can from other sources such as the "Choosing WI Residential Options" link on the left.

Consult the various guides to choosing a nursing home via Wisconsin Nursing Homes for further ways to evaluate facilities.

Review individual Wisconsin Administrative Codes, Chapter DHS 132 (exit DHS).

Citation Class Code definitions (from Wisconsin Statutes Chapter 50)(exit DHS):

50.04(4)(b) Classification of violations. 
1.  A class "A" violation is a violation of this subchapter or of the rules promulgated thereunder which creates a condition or occurrence relating to the operation and maintenance of a nursing home presenting a substantial probability that death or serious mental or physical harm to a resident will result therefrom.

2.  A class "B" violation is a violation of this subchapter or of the rules promulgated thereunder which creates a condition or occurrence relating to the operation and maintenance of a nursing home directly threatening to the health, safety or welfare of a resident.

3.  A class "C" violation is a violation of this subchapter or of the rules promulgated thereunder which creates a condition or occurrence relating to the operation and maintenance of a nursing home which does not directly threaten the health, safety or welfare of a resident.

Depending on a facility's compliance history and its response when the deficiency is brought to its attention, a nursing home surveyor has three options in assessing a class "C" violation:

1.  Entering a notation. A surveyor enters a notation if the same state code provision has not been cited against the facility in the previous two years, and facility staff correct the deficient practice before the end of the survey. Where a surveyor enters a notation for a class "C" violation, the citation list will have 'CLASS C DEFICIENCY -- CORRECTED BEFORE VISIT COMPLETED' entered under 'CLASS CODE'.

2.  Entering a correction order. A surveyor enters a correction order if the same state code provision has not been cited against the facility in the previous two years, and the facility staff do not correct the deficient practice before the end of the survey. Where a surveyor enters a correction order, the citation list will have 'CLASS C DEFICIENCY -- CORRECTION ORDER SERVED' entered under 'CLASS CODE'.

3.  Sanctioning as an unmodified class 'C' violation. A surveyor cites a deficiency as a class 'C' deficiency, subject to all forfeitures and other penalties that are prescribed for offenses of that level, if the facility was cited for the same state code provision within the past two years. A surveyor will also cite a facility with an unmodified class 'C' violation if, during a facility revisit, he or she determines that a facility has failed to correct a class 'C' deficiency that had originally resulted in issuance of a correction order. In addition, if a surveyor conducts a revisit and finds that a deficiency that had originally been cited as a class 'A' or 'B' violation now only poses an indirect risk of harm, he or she may recite the deficiency as an unmodified class 'C' violation. Where a surveyor cites a facility with an unmodified class 'C' violation, the citation list will have 'CLASS C DEFICIENCY' entered under 'CLASS CODE'.
