DeGraff Rehabilitation and Skilled Nursing Facility Maintains Five-star Quality Rating

Released: 8/8/2022 6:00:00 AM

DeGraff Rehabilitation and Skilled Nursing Facility, a Kaleida Health long-term care facility, has maintained its five-star rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid’s Nursing Home Compare.

DeGraff Rehabilitation and Skilled Nursing Facility received five stars in overall quality as well as quality measures and four stars in health inspections. Nursing homes with five stars are considered to have above average quality care.

“Our staff at DeGraff go above and beyond every day to provide the highest quality care for our residents,” said Jonathan Hart, vice president of long-term care for Kaleida Health. “Despite the challenges brought on by COVID-19 and nationwide staffing shortages, this team continues to remain focused on providing excellent patient care.”

The publicly reported data helps consumers compare more than 15,000 nursing homes certified by Medicare and Medicaid in the U.S., based on categories including overall rating, quality measures and health inspections. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services developed Nursing Home Compare and the star rating system to provide the public with a means to search nursing home facilities and view the quality each provides. The data comes for CMS’s health inspection database, a national database of resident clinical data known as the minimum data set and Medicare claims data.

DeGraff Rehabilitation and Skilled Nursing Facility is an 80-bed facility, offering 24-hour care to those who cannot care for themselves due to physical, emotional, or mental health problems. Staff provide quality health care, assistance with daily activities and emotional support in an environment geared toward independent, dignified living.

DeGraff Rehabilitation and Skilled Nursing Facility was also among the 13% of U.S. skilled nursing facilities recognized as a Best Nursing Home for 2021-22 by U.S. News & World Report.
