In a rating of skilled nursing facilities in the Gadsden-area, McGuffey Healthcare is on top. According to Nursing Home Care, McGuffey is the only 5-star nursing home in the city.
“When you are looking for a place for yourself or a loved one to receive long-term care, quality and safety are important factors,” said administrator, April Conley. “We are proud that our efforts consistently result in top ratings so we can serve our city with superior care.”
Nursing Home Compare is a healthcare rate website run by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. Known as CMS, this federal agency establishes and enforces the standards for skilled nursing facilities. Periodically, CMS evaluates the homes in three areas: state-conducted health inspections, nurse staffing and medical quality measures. CMS later determines a star rating from one to five stars for each area.
McGuffey is also one of only two nursing home facilities within 25 miles of the Gadsden area with a 5-star rating.
“We are so pleased to be recognized for the hard work that our staff and caregivers put into providing dignified and safe care to our residents,” Conley said.
