Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (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 you may want to ask questions. The quality rating system gives each nursing home a rating of between 1 and 5 stars. Nursing homes with 4 or 5 stars are considered to have “above average” quality.
U.S. News and World Reports annually recognizes nursing centers that have received the highest-rankings from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Nursing centers are rated on measures of care, nurse staffing and health inspections.
Deficiency-Free Survey, 2011 Kindred Transitional Care and Rehabilitation Center - Siena received a deficiency-free survey from the California Department of Health in 2011.
Our center received a deficiency-free survey from the Department of Health. State regulations require each facility to be thoroughly surveyed and evaluated on areas such as safety, quality of care, patient rights, food service, nursing care and administration - we excelled in meeting all of these requirements. Each state conducts these onsite inspections that determine whether its nursing homes meet the minimum Medicare and Medicaid quality and performance standards. The State conducts inspections of each nursing home that participates in Medicare and/or Medicaid about once a year. The inspection team consists of trained inspectors, including at least one registered nurse.
