We are proud to announce that SHC of Portland has earned and maintained a 5/5 Star Ranking for Quality Measures for 9 consecutive months!
“What are Quality Measures all about, and why should they matter to me?” you might ask yourself. Below is a short description from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (“CMS”) website explaining:
“Quality measures are tools that help us measure or quantify healthcare processes, outcomes, patient perceptions, and organizational structure and/or systems that are associated with the ability to provide high-quality health care and/or that relate to one or more quality goals for health care. These goals include: effective, safe, efficient, patient-centered, equitable, and timely care.”
In the eyes of the consumer, it’s a good indicator of the quality of care each Nursing Home delivers as compared to National Averages.
We are proud of our Quality Measure scores as they are a testament of the hard work, dedication, and commitment our staff has to our elders and the Portland & Sumner County community!
