RESIDENTS OF LONG-TERM CARE FACILITIES REQUIRE PERSONALIZED, RESIDENT-FOCUSED HIGH-QUALITY CARE MONITORED THROUGH THE QUALITY INDICATOR SURVEY (QIS) AND FIVE STAR RATING SYSTEM
In 2010, approximately 9 million men and women over the age of 65 will require long-term care. By 2020, it is projected that this number will increase to over 12 million of our nation’s elderly requiring long-term care services. A study by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services indicates that people who reach 65 will have a 40% chance of entering a nursing home. Approximately 10% of the people who enter a nursing home will stay an average of five years or more.
Long-term care is a variety of services to assist people with daily support activities from dressing, bathing, and using the bathroom to total 24/7 care. The QIS and Five Star Rating System focuses on transparency of facility services. The objective is to ensure that each long-term care facility is providing the highest quality individualized care in the most efficient manner and in regulatory compliance.
