Sibley Renaissance Earns Five-Star Quality Rating From Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS)
February 3, 2014
Sibley Memorial Hospital’s Renaissance Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Facility has earned five stars, the highest obtainable, in overall quality, quality measures, staffing and registered nurse (R.N.) staffing for the second and third quarters of 2013.
Earning this rating indicates that the Renaissance has fulfilled staffing levels based on resident needs, across both the staffing domain and the R.N. staffing domain, and achieved high quality for both physical and clinical quality measures.
Ratings for each domain are combined to calculate an overall rating that provides consumers a picture of the care that individual nursing facilities deliver. The five-star rating system allows consumers and their families to compare nursing facilities in order to identify areas of concern or deficient practice. CMS uses its own database, health Inspection results and a federally mandated national database known as Minimum Data Set (MDS) to compile its ratings.
The 45-bed Renaissance unit is an interdisciplinary rehabilitation program that provides individualized care to help residents become more independent. The mission is to provide safe, quality nursing care to the post-operative, orthopedic and geriatric population; respond to their needs in a timely manner and address concerns of the family.
