Water’s Edge Senior Living Thrives in Quality Rating

Water’s Edge Senior Living Thrives in Quality Rating

Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) rates Water’s Edge a perfect 5-stars in ‘Quality Measures’ category.

The star rating is based on a number of clinical data points including resident fall rate, hospitalizations, and independent mobility, among others.

“Our high-quality care comes with contributions from the entire healthcare team. A huge thank you to our employees–they are the difference,” applauds Candi McConnell, Administrator of Water’s Edge.

There is one overall 5-star rating for each nursing home, and separate ratings for health inspections, staffing and quality measures. The staff at Water’s Edge have previously achieved 5-star ratings in staffing and health inspections, but the recent valuation in Quality Measurements gives the perfect rating in all categories.

CMS created the Five-Star Quality Rating System to help consumers, their families, and caregivers easily compare nursing homes. The Nursing Home Care 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.

“Our hard work has paid off,” says Luke Beirl, CEO of Hayward Area Memorial Hospital & Water’s Edge. “We have high standards for quality, safety and service. The continuous improvement and meaningful contributions from every single individual helped us achieve a strong quality rating, and shows we are truly living our mission to improve the health and wellbeing of the people in our community.”
