Fairly recently, the state of California has instituted a star system for nursing homes, in which they give up to five. This must be visibly posted somewhere in the facility.

One of the worst nursing homes I've ever worked in posted a three out of five. "OK", I thought. "Maybe they're really working on things to get better."

Then, I discover that the best nursing home in my area, with the most caring staff, and the best rehab team who get their patients functioning and home rapidly, has two out of five.

Somehow, I've got to find the scoring protocols that the state is using, because this is ludicrous.
