ROCKVILLE, MD – The Village at Rockville—A National Lutheran Community (TVAR) in Rockville, Md., formerly known as the National Lutheran Home, was ranked number eight in the state of Maryland out of 205 senior care providers, and number two out of 32 providers in Montgomery County.
According to the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene’s (DHMH) Office of Health Care Quality, the Pay for Performance (P4P) rankings assesses several criteria. Those quality measures include data from other surveys, weighted as a percentage of the P4P overall composite score.
The Maryland Health Care Commission Family Satisfaction Survey comprises 40 percent, along with staffing levels and staff stability accounting for another 40 percent; Minimum Data Set (MDS) Quality Indicators are 16 percent and employing an infection control professional and staff immunizations account for two percent each.
The P4P program was created from the Maryland Senate Bill 101 in 2007 that authorized DHMH to initiate assessments on certain continuing care retirement communities and facilities in Maryland, based on non-Medicare patient days of service, in order to provide reimbursement cuts to those communities/facilities in the Medicaid program.
“This recognition highlights the hard work and dedication of the staff who work tirelessly to provide quality care and excellent customer service. I am thrilled for the team members at TVAR,” Executive Director Jana Broughton said. “Caregiving is difficult work and often goes unrecognized, this is an honor and something our staff should be incredibly proud of!”
