Pisgah Manor Achieves Five-Star Quality Rating

Pisgah Manor recently achieved a highly sought after Five-Star Quality Rating – the highest rating possible on the scale dictated by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). 

The CMS created the Five-Star Quality Rating System to help potential residents, their families and caregivers compare skilled nursing facilities.

The quality rating is determined by three sources of information: health inspections, staffing and quality measures. 

  1. Health Inspections: The health inspection rating uses the three most recent health inspections and any investigations due to complaints. Trained, objective inspectors visit each facility to determine if the facility meets Medicaid and Medicare’s minimum quality requirements.
  2. Staffing: The staffing rating is determined by the average number of hours staff provide care to each resident each day. 
  3. Quality Measures: The quality measure rating involves 15 different physical and clinical measures for residents, offering details about how well facilities care for their residents’ physical and clinical needs.

Pisgah Manor’s Five-Star Quality Rating was achieved by a team whose goal is to continuously evaluate potential areas of improvement and growth to provide the highest quality of care to our residents.

Pisgah Manor is located in Candler, North Carolina just outside of Ashville and offers skilled nursing care, short-term rehabilitation and assisted living.
