Berlin, Vt -- Woodridge has consistently been rated at four stars by The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) in their Five Star Nursing Home Quality Rating System. In November 2014 Woodridge was raised to five stars, according to Ursula Margazano, Administrator for Woodridge Rehabilitation and Nursing.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) recently made three significant improvements to the Five Star Nursing Home Quality Rating System:

  • Incorporated the two nursing home quality measures for antipsychotic use into the Quality Measure Rating.
  • Increased the number of points necessary to earn a Quality Measure Star Rating of 2 or more stars.
  • Changed the scoring method for the Staffing star rating.

After CMS implemented the five star ratings improvements only twelve Vermont nursing homes, including Woodridge Rehabilitation and Nursing, retained their five star ratings out of the 37 Skilled Nursing Facilities in the state.

“Congratulations to everyone at Woodridge for the dedication and hard work that is now consistently earning Woodridge five stars,” said Judy Tartaglia, president and CEO of the University of Vermont Health Network – Central Vermont Medical Center. “They are the best of the best.”
