California Nursing Home Gets Highest Medicare Rating

We write enough here about nursing homes that commit acts of abuse or neglect, so we thought we’d mention one that is being recognized for providing good care. A California Filipino-American owned nursing facility received a five-star rating from the US Department of Health and Human Services and the US Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

Good Samaritan Rehabilitation and Care Center, in Stockton, was one of only a handful of nursing homes in the country to receive 5-stars in every measurement of quality of care. The Medicare Nursing Home Compare website provides categorical quality ratings for each of the 16,000 U.S. nursing homes. Good Samaritan received five starts in the areas of health inspections, quality measures, and staffing levels.

The owner of Good Samaritan said that the facility takes the ratings seriously, and continually looking for ways to improve care.
