As the result of a minor auto accident, and some related illnesses, I was referred to the Whittier Rehabilitation Center. The quality of care that I received from the caring and highly trained staff of assistants, therapists, nurses and doctors made the critical difference in my recovery. They worked with my family and I to make my stay as productive and short as possible, and to prepare me to be independent when I returned home. I want to thank them publicly for all that they did for me. In particular, I want to extend my thanks to Dr. Alfred Arcidi and Leo Curtin, who clearly set the tone and the expectations for the quality of care. As a resident of Haverhill, I found Whittier to be an outstanding resource.”

CMS created the Five-Star Quality Rating System to help consumers, their families, and caregivers compare nursing homes more easily and to help identify areas about which they may want to ask questions.  The Nursing Home Compare Web site features a quality rating system that gives each nursing home a rating of between 1 and 5 stars.  Nursing homes with 5 stars are considered to have much above average quality and nursing homes with 1 star are considered to have quality much below average.  There is one Overall 5-star rating for each nursing home, and a separate rating for each of the following three sources of information:  Health Inspections, Staffing, and Quality Measures (QMs).
