Veterans Home in Murfreesboro Receives Top Marks
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee State Veterans home in Murfreesboro has been ranked among the best in the country.
U.S. News and World Report rated more than 16,000 nursing homes using data research on nursing home safety, health inspection and staffing. The data used to compile the report comes from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
In 2013, CMS issued a five star rating to the Tennessee State Veterans Home in Murfreesboro.
Tyler Madison is the facility administrator. He says teamwork is the key to the home’s success. He also says the home goes above and beyond to ensure veterans living there get quality care.
“We have 24 hour RN coverage, which is not necessarily normal for the long term care industry. We’re required 8 hours of RN coverage a day and we have 24 hours.”
This is the third year the home in Murfreesboro has received the award.
