Pearlandâ€™s 5-Star Rated Health Care Facility Now Adds Six New Quality Marks
Online PR News – 13-May-2016 – Pearland, Texas – Tuscany Village Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Facility (Tuscany Village), has once again, received a 5-star overall rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS.gov), which sets and enforces federal requirements and standards for nursing homes certified to receive Medicare and Medicaid payments. The ratings are based on a communityâ€™s performance in care, safety, health inspections and staffing.
Beginning July 2016, the Medicare.gov/Nursing Home Compare web portal will begin using new data from six additional quality marks which will soon affect a nursing homeâ€™s overall rating. In the short-stay category, Tuscany Village received higher quality marks than the Texas and National averages for residents who made improvements in function; and who were successfully discharged to the community. In the long-stay category, Tuscany Village notably demonstrated that their residents are not re-hospitalized or visit emergency rooms as often as the Texas and National averages.
â€śHaving Tuscany Village receive the highest rating from CMS speaks volumes about our community associates who are dedicated to providing quality care to our residents,â€ť said Administrator, Cecil Barcelo, Jr. â€śThe rating system is important for maintaining the highest standards in health care. We encourage consumers to tour the skilled nursing facilities that they are considering to get a firsthand understanding of the overall environment offered to their loved ones.â€ť
Family owned and operated, Tuscany Village strives to provide a family atmosphere, giving residents and guests an almost hotel-like experience. Tuscany Village is adding a new wing with 19 private suites scheduled to open Fall 2016. The new wing will feature a boutique style setting, expansive rehabilitation space, and a private restaurant.
