CMS gives Berlin facility five stars

(Feb. 26, 2015) Berlin Nursing & Rehabilitation, a 165-bed long-term care facility located at 9715 Healthway Drive in Berlin, was recently awarded 5 Stars, the highest rating, by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid’s (CMS).
The CMS rating system, which ranks nursing homes from 1 to 5 stars, was designed to help consumers and their families compare nursing homes more easily. A 5-star rating indicates that a nursing home’s quality is far above average.  
Berlin has served the Eastern Shore for more than 30 years with an array of services from short-term rehabilitation to long-term nursing care. The facility’s management said it provides compassionate services and innovative programs that improve care for residents of its facilities.
Among its offerings are a proprietary electronic medical record system that detects potential health problems at an early stage, highly experienced and skilled advanced practice nurses, care managers and specialized physicians and sophisticated care coordination approaches.
“This award recognizes the excellent quality of care that our skilled, compassionate staff deliver every day,” said Berlin Administrator Don Boger. “From investing in our facility to make it more comfortable and attractive, to having physicians and nurse practitioners onsite five days a week, we have worked hard to make Berlin a top-notch facility for our residents.”
In addition to its long-term nursing and rehab care, the Berlin facility offers a specialized respiratory care/ventilator unit and a dementia care unit. Other advanced nursing services include complete skin and wound care, total pain management, IV therapy, enteral tube feeding and tracheostomy care.
