Sunset Manor in Waverly ranks number one among 331 nursing homes in Kansas, according to the Great Plains Quality Improvement Network. The ranking places Sunset Manor in the top 10 percent of nursing homes in the United States.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) maintains a “composite score” system to assess quality of care in long-term care facilities based on 13 publicly reported quality measures—the lower the score, the better.
“Sunset Manor’s composite score is under 2.0, which is well below the goal of 6.0 for Kansas nursing homes,” said Coffey Health System Chief Operating Officer James Higgins. “Director of Nursing Krista Cubit and our entire Sunset Manor team work together to exceed these national goals. But more importantly, they work every day to exceed the expectations of our residents and their families. By continually focusing on resident well-being—including reducing the use of antipsychotic medications and physical restraints—Sunset Manor is raising the bar for long-term care in eastern Kansas.”
According to a report from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Office of the Inspector General, 14 percent of older Americans living in nursing homes take at least one antipsychotic prescription. Moreover, 83 percent of Medicare claims for antipsychotics are prescribed for off-label conditions, including dementia. Working with Great Plains Quality Innovation Network, Sunset Manor effectively took interventions to eradicate unnecessary use.
Other measures that significantly contribute to Sunset Manor’s number one ranking include a low rate of falls resulting in injury, an emphasis on maintaining or improving daily living skills, and reduced reporting of moderate to severe pain. Sunset Manor also reported low percentages of catheter usage, urinary tract infections, incontinence, pressure ulcers, depression, and weight loss. The facility maintains high rates of vaccination for influenza and pneumonia.
The Kansas Health Care Association recently recognized two members of the Sunset Manor team for excellence in their care of residents. Stephanie Weston (left) was named Nurse Aide of the Year and Maggie Ele was awarded Food Service Employee of the Year.
