[Burlington, CO, July 9, 2019] – Grace Manor completed their annual state health inspection and the team at Grace Manor Care Center, a Burlington skilled care and rehabilitation facility, are celebrating their excellent results!
Nursing homes (and skilled care facilities) must meet certain requirements set by Congress. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) have entered into an agreement with State governments to complete routine health inspections and to investigate complaints about nursing home care. A quality ranking system has been developed by CMS to help provide insights for consumers that are searching for short or long-term care. Health inspections, as well as staffing, and quality measures, contribute to the overall rating of each facility.
“This is the second year that we have had such phenomenal results and I am so proud of our staff!” stated Sherri Weber, executive director. Recognition for quality of care and services is nothing new to this team. Director of nursing (and long-time staff member) Elnora Shandy, has led the team to achieve two national recognition awards – the NHHQCC Honor Role for scoring in the top 10% and the AHCA National Quality Award, Bronze level in 2019; Additionally, this care facility has been recognized for excellent customer service through Pinnacle’s Customer Experience Award, and most recently, they have earned the Great Place to Work certification.
“We look forward to the CMS system update to occur so that the score will reflect this consistent year-over-year improvement and the phenomenal survey results for 2019.” stated Heather Stratton, VP of Operations with Frontline Management. “Sherri and the entire team at Grace Manor are working hard to deliver consistent and quality care and services every day. This outcome is well-deserved.” Heather added.
