Excellence in Care.
Naturally, you know what five stars mean when it comes to hotels, restaurants or any product for that matter: everyone is striving to provide that top-level experience for the people they serve. But what about a five-star health and rehab center? According to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the accommodations care, and services you can expect to receive at Meridian of Temple are indeed five-star.
Medicare’s five-star quality rating system is designed to help consumers, their families and caregivers compare health centers more easily, and to help assess health and wellness offerings that are of greatest interest to prospective residents. Meridian of Temple earned the rating based on three sources of data:
Health Inspections – based on a thorough review of approximately 180 major aspects of care, backed by on-site visits from trained inspectors who assess the quality of care, review medical records and speak with residents about their care. This is then supplemented by a review of state surveyor’s work by federal surveyors.
Staffing – based on the overall number of staff compared to the number of residents, as well as by the number of staff that are trained nurses. The ratings also take into consideration the level of sickness among residents, as that impacts the number of staff needed.
Quality Measures – based on performance in 10 important areas of care, ranging from how well residents maintain the ability to dress and eat to the prevention and treatment of conditions such as skin ulcers.
“Meridian of Temple is thrilled to earn this prestigious five-star rating from Medicare, especially given the importance that such ratings have in helping prospective residents choose the best provider for their respective needs,” says Gloria Cruz, RN, Director of Nursing Services at Meridian of Temple. “We take great pride in the level of health services we offer our residents and this achievement is the direct result of the hard work and dedication of every member of our outstanding team.”
Meridian of Temple has established a favorable reputation for the wide array of wellness and health care services offered to residents. The high standard of service is made possible by early-stage assessments of resident health histories followed by convenient, around-the-clock care to match each individual’s needs. In addition, the community emphasizes a comprehensive proactive wellness program, focusing on ongoing communication combined with health-related programming such as lectures, guidance and organized educational, recreational and entertainment activities to fit the residents’ needs and interests.
