N.C. Adult Care Homes Receive High Ratings From State Inspectors
Date:2/20/2009

RALEIGH, N.C., Feb. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- The State of North Carolina has just released the first inspection ratings for adult care homes and 58 of the 62 facilities inspected received three stars, the highest possible rating available this year. Forty-five facilities scored 100 points or more on the new rating system.

No facility can earn a four star rating for at least two years because it requires two consecutive inspection scores of 100 points or more.

"Adult care home providers work hard to provide competent, compassionate and quality care to North Carolina's frail and elderly citizens. These high scores demonstrate that most adult care homes in North Carolina are doing an outstanding job," said Lou Wilson, executive director of the N.C. Association of Long Term Care Facilities, the oldest assist living organization in North Carolina.

The N.C. Star Rating Program was introduced this year to help educate consumers about the quality of care provided in adult care homes. Inspections began in January 2009 and will be posted on the DHHS web site throughout the year. The web site address is: www.dhhs.state.nc.us/dhsr/acls/star/search.asp.

While star ratings are intended to help consumers make informed decisions regarding care options, Friends of Adult Care Homes encourages consumers to gather first-hand information by visiting facilities, speaking with residents and family members and consulting with adult home specialists in your county.
