What is the five star quality rating system for skilled nursing homes?

What is a department of health survey?
Department of Health representatives review skilled nursing facilities at least yearly to determine if the care provided is quality care, which meets the requirements necessary to receive Medicare or Medicaid payments.

The review includes facility tours, general nursing care, medical record review, resident and family interviews, staff to resident ratios, housekeeping, food service, nutrition, social services and general facility operations. A report is provided upon completion of the review and any items that require improvement must completed within the specified time period.
