Medicare’s Five-Star rating is a symbol of the genuine care we have for our patients
Santa Monica, CA (PRWEB) June 30, 2015
Fireside Convalescent Care Center announced today the release of its new YouTube video, “Fireside Convalescent Care Center.” The video informs community members of Fireside’s Five-Star Medicare ranking and patient satisfaction. Fireside chose to create the video after continually seeing the need for those seeking care to be well informed and confident about making a decision on which care center is best for them. Medicare’s ranking system recognizes facilities that address what patients are looking for in a care location—a healthy environment, friendly employees, and an overall standard of premium care.
“Medicare’s Five-Star rating is a symbol of the genuine care we have for our patients,” remarks Joy Moore, Director of Nursing at Fireside. “When patients are choosing a care center, they look for a facility that is right for their needs and desires. At Fireside, we accommodate our patients to ensure they receive quality care in all aspects of their stay.”
The video showcases multiple Fireside patients, including Eleanor, a short-term rehab patient. She says, “I really think it’s excellent, excellent care here. It’s almost like a family [in] that they welcomed you in and then help you get well. They don’t have a cookie-cutter kind of approach. What they’re doing is for me and it made me feel comfortable right from the beginning.” Fireside’s services include nursing services, rehabilitation (such as physical therapy), social services, and long-term and end-of-life-care. As a result, many doctors refer their patients to the care center.
The video also highlights the collaborative approach Fireside uses in its therapy services. Henry, a short-term rehab patient, says, “They have several people working with you, not just one person but different people, and they all have their expertise in helping you. I can’t be happier.”
Medicare’s rating system is designed for families searching for care center options, as centers vary by not only services, but also quality of care and facility. When choosing a location, potential patients often consider dietary options, cleanliness, medical treatment, staff friendliness, and social activity. Medicare’s rating system puts families at ease by telling them exactly what level of care they can expect at each facility.
