The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) have awarded the Livingston County Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation (LCCNR) with a Four-Star quality rating within their Five-Star Quality Rating System.
The new rating improves upon the LCCNR’s previous Three-Star designation and places the facility “above average” when compared to other nursing homes throughout the state and country. CMS considers a number of factors when creating rankings, including health inspection, quality measures, staffing, and registered nurse staffing. The LCCNR’s Four-Star rating is a well-deserved accomplishment and a direct result of the care and dedication of the County-run facility’s staff, said LCCNR Deputy Director of Long Term Care Eric Townsend.
“The staff and I are so proud of this achievement. To be recognized for all the hard work put into creating a caring and nurturing environment for our residents is really something special,” he said. “It’s very difficult to receive a rating like this. My hat is off to all our incredible employees who work so hard to make the LCCNR a better place for our residents to live each and every day.”
CMS created the Five-Star Quality Rating System to help consumers, their families, and caregivers more easily compare nursing homes throughout the U.S. The Nursing Home Care Compare web site features nursing home ratings with breakdowns for each of the four scoring criteria.
The LCCNR offers 24-hour skilled nursing services ranging from short-term, post-acute rehabilitative care to traditional long-term care. Residents receive care in a manner that addresses the needs of the individual. The LCCNR promotes a friendly, welcoming atmosphere with activities that involve friends, family, volunteers, and pets in creating a homelike environment for residents.
