Federal regulators with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) recently awarded Golfcrest Healthcare Center with five stars, its top star rating.
Under the five-star rating system, nursing homes are assessed in three main categories: health inspections, quality measures and staffing. The overall rating combines scores received in each of the three categories. The system is intended to help consumers, families and caregivers easily compare nursing homes.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is the federal government agency tasked with oversight of nursing home quality.
