I am so thankful for the care and attention I received during my stay in the Center for Health and Rehabilitation at Burcham Hills. The kindness and sincere concern that the caregivers, nurses and therapists give is extraordinary. I was reluctant to go anywhere other than home from the hospital; however, it was the best decision I could have made. I feel stronger and better than I’ve felt in a long time. Although I’m not just stronger following my stay at Burcham Hills, the quality of my life has improved with increased activity and more engagement in things that I hadn’t been able to enjoy, but now I can. Like playing my guitar. My appreciation goes out to the therapist for introducing me to different thing that I can continue at home like hand exercises that increase strength. The team at Burcham Hills has mine and my family’s most sincere gratitude. If you can’t be at home, Burcham Hills is definitely the place to be for rehab!

CMS Five-Star Quality Rating

Burcham Hills, the Life Plan Community serving East Lansing and the surrounding areas, has been awarded the achievement of a Five-Star Rating for The Center for Health & Rehabilitation, its on-site skilled nursing and rehabilitation center.

“Care excellence is our most important mission here at The Center for Health & Rehabilitation at Burcham Hills,” says Administrator Pegi Chatti. “I’m so proud of the quality we as a team are able to provide for residents and their families, and achievement of the Five-Star Rating underscores the value we place on that mission.”

What is the CMS Five-Star Quality Rating?

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services created the Five-Star Quality Rating System 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.

The CMS Nursing Home Compare website features a quality rating system that gives each nursing home a rating between one and five stars. Nursing homes with five stars are considered to have much above average quality and nursing homes with 1 star are considered to have quality much below average.

The Center for Health & Rehabilitation is just one of the senior living options available within the greater Burcham Hills community.  As part of its Life Plan Community concept, residents may choose from private apartment residences for independent living,  assisted living, memory care or suites for short-term rehabilitation, memory care or long-term nursing care.

How do they rate each senior living community?

There is one overall five-star rating for each nursing home, and a separate rating for each of the following three sources of information:

  • Health Inspections – The health inspection rating is generated from the last 3 years of on-site inspections, including both standard surveys and any complaint surveys.  This information is gathered by trained, objective inspectors who go onsite to the nursing home and follow a specific process to determine the extent to which a nursing home has met Medicaid and Medicare’s minimum quality requirements.  The most recent survey findings are weighted more than the prior two years.
  • Staffing – The staffing rating is determined by the number of hours of care provided on average to each resident each day by nursing staff.  This rating considers differences in the levels of residents’ care needed in each nursing home.  For example, a nursing home with residents who had more severe needs would be expected to have more nursing staff than a nursing home where the resident needs were not as high.
  • Quality Measures (QMs) – The quality measure rating is based on 16 different physical and clinical measures for nursing home residents.  The rating now includes data about a nursing home’s use of antipsychotic medications in both long-stay and short-stay residents.  This information is collected by the nursing home for all residents.  The QMs offer insight into how well nursing homes are caring for their residents’ physical and clinical needs.

“Only the top health care centers are awarded a five-star rating,” says Chatti. “For The Center for Health & Rehabilitation at Burcham Hills to be considered in the top tier of performance is truly an honor and testament to the hardworking caregivers here in the community.”
