RALEIGH — Virtually all of North Carolina’s adult care homes included in a new rating system are getting top marks under a system that awards stars to the homes.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reports that the ratings don’t include any serious violations that happened before Jan. 1.

Ratings for more than 60 centers were to be available online at noon Friday and the newspaper said about 95 percent of them get top ratings. North Carolina has about 1,2000 adult care homes, including family-care homes for six or fewer residents, as well as
assisting living centers which are usually much larger.

State Rep. Jennifer Weiss says under the new system, the ratings only reflect inspections that have been conducted this year. Weiss says the new star-rating system will encourage the homes to work hard for positive inspections.
