CMS requires facilities to indicate in EQRS which patients are considered to be 'nursing home patients.'


  • Log into EQRS https://eqrs.cms.gov/
  • From the Dashboard select Patients (top banner)
  • Search for the patient
  • Go Demographics page and EDIT the Contact Information 
  • Indicate whether the patient's address is a nursing home. 

Remember to update this information if the patient moves out of a nursing home setting.
