How we compare in Quality of Care

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) have developed a 5-Star Quality Rating System that measures three categories: Health Inspections, Staffing Levels and Quality for certified health care facilities/nursing homes across the country. All three Sunnyside Communities have achieved 5-Star Ratings in Overall Quality, which is quite an accomplishment!

~Our Summit Square campus in Waynesboro, Virginia has the highest scores within a 50-mile radius and 26 other listings.~

Frequently asked questions in regards to quality of care.

“Are all health care facilities and nursing homes certified?”
No. In order to be certified, it requires adherence to more than 150 quality-of-care regulations set by Congress. Currently, there are over 17,000 Medicare and Medicaid-certified “nursing homes” nation-wide.

“Where do you find information about quality of care?”
At www.medicare.gov , the most recent information and results from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) are available in the newly updated “Nursing Home Compare”. Ratings on every certified nursing home in the country are included. The 5-Star Quality Rating system, based on State and Federal agency inspections, shows meaningful differences between high- and low-performing nursing homes. More than 150 regulations are defined by Congress and evaluated, covering a wide range of topics, from protecting residents from physical or mental abuse and inadequate care to the safe storage and preparation of food.

“What details are evaluated for quality of care ratings?”
Health Inspections – Detailed information showing what health and safety regulations a nursing home failed to meet during recent health surveys, including fire safety inspections
Staffing levels – Federal law requires at least one licensed Registered Nurse (RN) for at least 8 hours per day, 7 days a week, and other nursing staff, such as an RN or Licensed Practical Nurse/Licensed Vocational Nurse (LPN/LVN), on duty 24 hours per day
Quality measures – measured by a screening tool called the “Minimum Data Set” or “MDS” that is required for each resident on admission and whenever the resident’s condition changes
