Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) created the Five-Star Quality Rating System to help consumers, their families, and caregivers compare nursing homes more easily and to help identify areas about which you may want to ask questions. The quality rating system gives each nursing home a rating of between 1 and 5 stars. Nursing homes with 4 or 5 stars are considered to have “above average” quality.

Our center received a deficiency-free survey from the Department of Health.

Each state conducts these onsite inspections that determine whether its nursing homes meet the minimum Medicare and Medicaid quality and performance standards. The State conducts inspections of each nursing home that participates in Medicare and/or Medicaid about once a year. The inspection team consists of trained inspectors, including at least one registered nurse.
