Bellefontaine Place Overview
Bellefontaine Place is a nursing home. Bellefontaine Place is also a for-profit corporation. Bellefontaine Place participates in Medicare and Medicaid. Bellefontaine Place is not in a Continuing Care Retirement Community (“CCRC”). A CCRC offers multiple housing options and levels of care. Typically, a CCRC offers the most service-intensive options for residents. At a CCRC, residents may freely move from one level of care to another. Bellefontaine Place is also not in a hospital. Some residents require more intensive care that can only be provided at a hospital. Because Bellefontaine Place is not located at a hospital, residents cannot be easily and quickly transferred to an acute care setting, if necessary.
According to Medicare’s Nursing Home Care, Bellefontaine Place has no overall rating. Altogether, Medicare gives Bellefontaine Place no star ratings. We all know the more stars, the better.
- Overall rating: not reported. Medicare assigns the overall star rating based on a nursing home’s performance on three separate categories: health inspections, staffing, and quality measures. Each of these categories has its own star ratings, with more stars meaning better quality of care.
- Health inspections: not reported. Health care professionals conduct annual inspections for Medicare and Medicaid certified nursing facilities to identify any health and safety citations. The more stars mean fewer health risks.
- Staffing: not reported. More stars mean a better level of staffing per nursing home resident. The rating is based on the number of professional nursing home staff hired including the average time said professionals spent caring for residents. The rating also takes into account the needs of the residents vis-à-vis staffing requirements. The more stars mean a better level of staffing per nursing home resident.
- Quality of resident care: not reported. Once again, more stars are better. Nursing homes that are certified by Medicare and Medicaid frequently report clinical information about their residents to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). CMS then assigns nursing homes a quality of resident care star rating based on their performance on 16 measures. These, and other measures reflect how well nursing homes care for their residents
