Rouse Home Skilled Nursing Facility given Five-Star Rating

Searching for a healthcare facility that provides five-star care in skilled nursing and sub-acute rehab just became easier for residents of Warren County and the surrounding areas.

Cindy Walters, Rouse Home Administrator, proudly announces that the United States government and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) have awarded the highest rating, of five-stars out of five, to the Rouse Home skilled nursing facility, in Youngsville.

CMS created the Five-Star Quality Rating System to help individuals, families, and caregivers compare nursing homes, and to identify key areas related to the quality of care provided. Key areas include recent health inspections, staffing level ratios, registered nursing levels and quality measures. Nursing homes vary in the quality of care and services they provide, and this quality rating system lends an overview of the individual care their loved one will receive.

Those facilities that have achieved a 5-star rating are considered to deliver a quality of care significantly above average.

The Rouse Home consists of 176 beds, offering both short and long-term care for individuals who need rehabilitative services or who suffer from serious or persistent healthcare issues. Residents of the Rouse Home receive around-the-clock skilled nursing care with the option to improve functional abilities such as strength and balance through rehabilitation in physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy. Residents can also look forward to daily living activities and a person-centered care experience above any other in the county.

According to Ken Schonbachler, CEO of the Rouse Estate, “Achieving a Five-Star Quality Rating is the goal of every long-term nursing facility. This achievement is the result of incredible teamwork from all of our various departments, including admissions, rehabilitation, nursing, housekeeping, dietary, recreation, and all ancillary areas. I’m so proud to help lead this incredible team and so thrilled that the Rouse Home can offer the highest level of quality care to the Warren County area.”
