TLC receives five-star rating again



 

 

TLC Nursing Center and Rehabilitation in Oneonta once again received a five-star rating given by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) who developed the rating system to assist consumers, caregivers, and families to easily compare nursing homes. Facilities throughout the U.S. must submit data to CMS that address various areas of care provided. Facilities are ranked on a one-to-five scale. Nursing homes with five stars are considered to have above-average quality.

TLC provides long term care, rehabilitation services, and a therapy staff experienced with physical, speech, and occupational therapy. Short-term stays are not uncommon as clients work to rehabilitate and return to home after surgeries such as hip and knee replacements. They also offer IV therapy, behavioral management, wound and skin care, podiatry, and vision care.

Admissions are accepted 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and staff will provide tours for those in search of a local nursing home. TLC is located at 212 Ellen Street, Oneonta, phone 625-3520. Visit www.medicare.gov/nursinghomecompare/search to utilize the CMS system.
