Montevista is CMS 5-Star Rated
Montevista Rehabilitation and Skilled Care is proud to have recently been rated as a 5-star quality facility by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). We work hard to foster an environment of healing and comfort and are truly honored to have our dedication to our patients and residents be recognized. Only the top 10% of senior living centers in each state can receive a 5-star rating, and Oklahoma is home to 293 qualifying facilities. What that means is that of the 29 facilities in Oklahoma that are eligible to receive this prestigious ranking, Montevista is delighted to be one of them, again!
What Does a 5-Star Rating Mean?
The Centers of Medicare & Medicaid Services conducts rigorous inspections and reviews of all Medicare/Medicaid facilities to ensure that they are offering coverage at facilities that will deliver the best care to our nation’s qualifying seniors. Using a scale of 1 (being the worst) to 5 (representing the best), senior living facilities are rated on three main areas of care – health inspections, staffing, and quality measures.
Health inspections include a physical examination and inspection of the facility as it currently stands as well as a review and investigation of complaints, work orders, and previous years’ findings. All these factors are considered when delivering a rating to ensure the best living experience all year round.
Staffing measures are rated on the average time spent with each resident based on their needs and the available staff to meet those needs. Staffing reviews include an audit of schedules and personnel files as well as resident complaints/grievances and patient care documentation.
Quality measures (QMs) include information and a review of 15 different clinical and physical measures including re-hospitalization, pressure ulcers, urinary tract infections, and foley catheter placement, falls, independence and improvement in activities of daily living, vaccination rates, weight management, use of restraints, and more.
