The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid services (CMS) recently published their Star Ratings for nursing homes and long-term care facilities on the organization’s Nursing Home Compare website. Archbold’s Glenn-Mor Nursing Home (GMNH) was one of only two facilities in Thomasville to earn a five-star overall rating.
The CMS rating system features an overall five-star rating based on facility performance for three types of performance measures—inspections, staffing and quality measures.
The health inspection rating contains information from the last three years of on-site inspections, including both standard surveys and any complaint surveys.
The staffing rating has information about the number of hours of care provided on average to each resident each day by nursing staff. This rating considers differences in the levels of residents’ care needed in each nursing home.
The quality measure rating has information on 11 different physical and clinical measures for nursing home residents. The quality measures include data from short-term and long-term residents, from the number of residents who need physical therapy, to residents who take certain medications.
“We are very proud to be recognized with a five-star overall rating from CMS,” said Cynthia Vickers, administrator at GMNH. “We always strive to put the needs of our residents first. We are dedicated to providing the highest quality of care, and this recognition is validation of that dedication.”
