Farmington Presbyterian Manor is on the U.S. News and World Report Best Nursing Homes 2017-18 list. The senior living community received the highest score of a five-star rating system to make the list, available today at www.usnews.com/nursinghomes.
The U.S. News and World Report list uses information from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the government agency that sets and enforces standards for nursing homes. CMS assigns one to five stars to each community for how well it performs in health inspections, nurse staffing and level of quality care.
“Farmington Presbyterian Manor employees continue to focus their efforts on delivering quality caring every day,” said Jane Hull, executive director at Farmington Presbyterian Manor. “The five-star ratings confirm their good work.”
Farmington returns to the US News and World Report Best Nursing Homes list after a one year absence. This is the sixth time since 2011 that the community has appeared on the list.
Survey teams from the state conduct inspections in each community every 12 to 15 months. The surveys cover a checklist of about 180 items such as medication management, food preparation and delivery, proper paperwork, and resident enrichment activities.
In addition to Farmington Presbyterian Manor, seven PMMA locations are on the honoree list with five-star ratings: Arkansas City, Emporia, Lawrence, Newton, Parsons and Sterling in Kansas, and Fulton in Missouri.
