Parsons Presbyterian Manor is on the U.S. News and World Report Best Nursing Homes 2015 list. The senior living community received the highest score of a five-star rating system to make the list, available today at 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.
“Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America employees continue to focus their efforts on delivering quality caring every day,” said PMMA President and CEO Bruce Shogren. “The five-star ratings confirm their good work.”
This is first time in three years, and the third time since 2011 that Parsons has appeared on the US News and World Report Best Nursing Homes 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 Parsons Presbyterian Manor, 13 PMMA locations are on the honoree list with five-star ratings: Arkansas City, Clay Center, Emporia, Lawrence, Newton, Olathe (Aberdeen Village), Salina, Sterling and Wichita in Kansas, and Farmington, Fulton, Kirkwood (Aberdeen Heights) and Rolla in Missouri.
