Information on methodology
An asterisk (*) in front of a name signifies: “The health survey was performed using the Quality Indicator Survey process: The Quality Indicator Survey (QIS) process and the traditional standard survey are the two types of surveys approved to determine compliance with Medicare/Medicaid requirements. The QIS uses a structured review of the medical records and direct observations of the care of larger samples of residents to derive rates for a comprehensive set of Quality of Care Indicators (QCIs). Surveyors then investigate care areas that have been triggered for review by the QCIs. The QIS process is being pilot tested in several states.”

Health Inspections: Lists the health requirements that the nursing home failed to meet in the last three years.

Nursing Home Staffing: Information comes from data that the nursing home reports to its state agency. It contains the nursing home staffing hours for a two-week period prior to the time of the state inspection. CMS receives this data and converts it into the number of staff hours per resident per day.

Quality Measures: Information comes from data that the nursing homes regularly report on all residents. It includes aspects of residents’ health, physical functioning, mental status and general well being.

Private Alternatives
While rating information is most available for places that accept Medicare, some places don’t except the funding. Here are two places with top-notch reputations among the “private” specialized living centers.

Poydras Home (5354 Magazine St., 897-0535, PoydraHome.com), located in Uptown New Orleans since 1817, currently has 74 beds in its continuing care retirement community. A new addition slated for opening in June 2013 will add 33 assisted living apartments as well as memory support services. Nationally known for quality of care and innovative programs, Poydras Home offers Alzheimer’s care, assisted/nursing care, independent living and adult day care, as well dementia care, which all can be individualized.

Lambeth House (150 Broadway St., 865-1960, LambethHouse.com) is a continuing care retirement center with 188 independent living apartments, 51 assisted living units and 39 nursing care beds. It caters to those 62 and older with stimulating activities and wellness opportunities to maintain good health, independence and high energy for both independent living and assisted living residents. By early fall 2013, Lambeth House will have completed a $17 million building expansion that will include: a wellness center with a lap pool, gym and an aerobics studio; a new art studio, massage therapy and spa section; a café and a meditation garden; a 16 bed memory support program; and an expansion of nursing services to 85 beds, all centered on personal care, which will allow for Lambeth House and St. Anna’s Residence (Lambeth House’s Sister senior care community) to occupy one space on Broadway Street.
