Westview Health Care Center, a 103 bed skilled nursing facility located in Dayville, Connecticut has once again been ranked to be among the Best Nursing Homes in the United States with a 5 Star Overall Rating according to US News and World Report.
“We are very proud to have maintained a consistency of quality that has been recognized nationally since the inception of the nursing home ranking system,” commented Westview Administrator David T. Panteleakos. “It is the result of surrounding our residents and patients with an amazingly skilled, dedicated, and compassionate staff.”
The report, now in its sixth year, bases its findings from the federal government’s Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ (CMS) Nursing Home Compare data on nearly 16,000 nationwide Medicare and Medicaid-certified nursing homes in the country. CMS sets and enforces standards for nursing homes enrolled in Medicare and Medicaid. Each facility’s profile displays health and fire violations, performance in important clinical categories and how much time nursing staff spends with residents. The ratings are combined to produce an overall rating of one to five stars. The Nursing Home Compare report has detailed information that allows consumers to compare information with other nursing homes.
According to U.S. News and World Report, the Best Nursing Homes ranking report is “designed to help the millions of Americans who will spend time in a nursing home in 2014.” Data from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services indicates about 60 percent of individuals over 65 will require some type of long-term care services during their lifetime and over 40 percent will receive care in a nursing home for some period.
“Earning this mark of distinction is truly an honor,” said Panteleakos. “Keeping it is reflected in the mission and culture of everything we do here at Westview.”
Westview Health Care Center is a 103-bed skilled nursing inpatient facility, which includes a distinct and self-contained 28-bed subacute short-term rehabilitation unit and an Outpatient Rehabilitation and Aquatic Center, both dedicated to providing quality health care services. Along with garnering a perfect five star overall rating found on Medicare.gov Westview is proud to have received such accolades as US News and World Report America’s Best, Consumer Reports Top 10 Connecticut Nursing Facility rating and Health Grades 5-Star Top Ranking.
