The Menig Nursing Home has received an overall Five-Star rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), according to the latest reports published by the federal agency.
The CMS rating system was created “to help consumers, their families, and caregivers compare nursing homes more easily and to help identify areas about which [they] may want to ask questions.” It publishes reports on the Nursing Home Compare page at medicare.gov, with the most recent ratings incorporating data reported through Sept. 30.
“This CMS Five-Star rating is a reflection of the commitment to excellence demonstrated daily by the providers and staff at Menig Nursing Home,” said Gifford President and CEO Dan Bennett. “Their dedication to providing high-quality care for our residents is unsurpassed, and gives the families and caregivers of our residents peace of mind.”
Yearly this year, Menig earned a deficiency-free survey from CMS. That survey made Menig the first nursing home in Vermont to complete a deficiency-free survey under new federal nursing home requirements.
Menig Nursing Home is located at Morgan Orchards Senior Living Community, which also includes Strode Independent Living. The facilities are led by Ursula Margazano, executive director of the community and Menig administrator. Under Margazano’s leadership, Gifford continues to develop and expand services and support to meet the needs of aging community members in Randolph and surrounding towns in Orange and Windsor counties.
