Dear Ms. Grasso: Our entire family would like to sincerely thank your facility and its staff for the marvelous job they all did in caring for Teddy L. Without exception each one of your staff gave sincere, loving, compassionate, empathetic, nurturing and patient care as we all worked through this climactic event. You should be very proud to have a team of such excellent professionals. Tun, Jeff, Beth, Ann, Anna, Brian, were just some of your team members that were interfacing with us so delicately. I believe Tun even stayed several evenings well past his shift to sit with Teddy - a sacrifice of love. When I told my friends about the excellent care you provided by repositioning, cleaning and changing Teddy so frequently, they were so impressed. It kept our loved one very calm and comfortable. The entire process was like a feather floating to the floor. Your professionals made the best out of an awful reality. Please forgive me by not mentioning by name all the ones that gave such incredible support. We look forward to working with you all as Peggy is still in your capable hands. With immense gratitude, Jim and Peggy F. along with the extended family

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).
