Mentor Ridge Achieves Five-Star Status with CMS!


April 26, 2019

Mentor Ridge Health and Rehabilitation has been given five-star status by the Center for Medicaid and Medicare Services. This is the highest level of achievement in the Quality Rating System implemented by CMS.

Mentor Ridge is proud to be recognized by the Center for Medicaid and Medicare Services as a Five Star Facility! This achievement is a testament to the outstanding staff at Mentor Ridge and their commitment to clinical excellence and resident satisfaction. Foundations Health Solutions vision for Mentor Ridge is for the interior and exterior beauty of the facility to be matched with the highest level of nursing and rehab services for residents. 

The Center for Medicaid and Medicare Services created "The Nursing Home Compare" website featuring a quality rating system that gives each nursing home a rating of between 1 and 5 stars. Nursing homes with 5 stars are considered to have much above average quality and nursing homes with 1 star are considered to have quality much below average. There is one Overall 5-star rating for each nursing home and a separate rating for each of the following three sources of information: 

Health Inspections – The health inspection rating contains information from the last 3 years of onsite inspections, including both standard surveys and any complaint surveys. This information is gathered by trained, objective inspectors who go onsite to the nursing home and follow a specific process to determine the extent to which a nursing home has met Medicaid and Medicare’s minimum quality requirements. The most recent survey findings are weighted more than the prior two years. More than 180,000 onsite reviews are used in the health inspection scoring nationally.

Staffing – 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 need in each nursing home. For example, a nursing home with residents who had more severe needs would be expected to have more nursing staff than a nursing home where the resident needs were not as high.

Quality Measures (QMs) –
 The quality measure rating has information on 11 different physical and clinical measures for nursing home residents. The rating now includes information about nursing homes' use of antipsychotic medications in both long-stay and short-stay residents. This information is collected by the nursing home for all residents. The QMs offer information about how well nursing homes are caring for their residents’ physical and clinical needs. More than 12 million assessments of the conditions of nursing home residents are used in the Five-Star rating system.
