Five-Star Quality Rating System

The Five-Star Quality Rating System was created to help consumers, their families, and caregivers compare nursing homes more easily. Nursing home ratings are taken from the following three sources of data: health inspections, staffing and quality measures. The CMS provides a star rating for each of these three sources and then the three ratings are combined to calculate an overall rating.



South Heritage Health & Rehab Center recently received a 2018 deficiency-free survey from the State of Florida, Department of Public Health. The survey, which occursannually, evaluates nursing homes on many aspects of life in a nursing home.  At all times, certified nursing homes must meet numerous regulatory standards designed to promote quality care and protect nursing home residents.
