Behold our handiwork! 19 students worked together, entirely online, to produce this map of West Virginia nursing homes in the span of about an hour and a half (see the assignment here). In addition to mapping each of the state’s 128 nursing homes, the data points indicate overall rating (on a scale of 1 to 5 stars) and for-profit or non-profit status. You can also click any point to its name, contact information, and more specific ratings.
- Green: 5 stars
- Dark Blue: 4 stars
- Light Blue: 3 stars
- Yellow: 2 stars
- Red: 1 star
- Dot: For-profit
- No dot: Non-profit or government-run
All data comes from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Medicare information site.
