According to CMS.gov, a nursing home's Overall Quality rating on Nursing Home Compare is based on its ratings for Health Inspections, Quality Measures (QMs), and Staffing. Ratings for each domain and the overall rating range from 1 star to 5 stars, with more stars indicating higher quality. Sunporch of Smith County recently received a 5-star rating from Nursing Home Compare.
Whitney Dill, Administrator at Sunporch, gave credit to the entire team. “We all work really hard to provide quality services, and to receive this recognition is the outcome of that hard work. With so many challenges and changes that occur in health care, it is easy to let things drop but each of our team members does amazing work every day which is reflected in receiving this 5-star rating. We see it here at Sunporch, but to have a federal agency also recognize those efforts is truly appreciated.”
