The star ratings are part of Medicare's efforts to make data on dialysis centers easier to understand and use. The star ratings show whether your dialysis center provides quality dialysis care - that is, care known to get the best results for most dialysis patients. The rating ranges from 1 to 5 stars. A facility with a 5-star rating has quality of care that is considered 'much above average' compared to other dialysis facilities. A 1- or 2- star rating does not mean that you will receive poor care from a facility. It only indicates that measured outcomes were below average compared to those for other facilities.
Name, address, and phone number,
The date the facility was certified by Medicare,
Whether or not the facility offers shifts starting at 5:00 pm or later,
The number of treatment stations,
The types of dialysis offered (in-center hemodialysis, home hemodialysis, PD, etc.)
- The percent of patients who received adequate dialysis
- The percent of patients whose anemia was adequately managed
- Patient survival information
We encourage you to use the this TOOLKIT to share Dialysis Facility Compare with your organization or your patients. Dialysis Facility Compare allows patients and caregivers to search for and compare centers. For patients already on dialysis, the website is a resource to help them understand the quality of care their dialysis center provides.
