Focus on Excellence/Oklahoma Nursing Home Ratings

Mission:

To allow nursing facilities that are established and rooted in Oklahoma the opportunity to achieve above and beyond the standard level of care already being provided. This program is goal oriented to enrich the nursing facilities’’ overall quality of care.

Vision:

Our vision is that all facilities will receive incentive reimbursement, and the state of Oklahoma will have the top-rated care in nursing facilities across the nation. This will enhance not only the nursing facilities and their employees, but the lives of Oklahomans and their families.

Website

Focus on Excellence provides consumers; family members; loved ones; and communities a web site that features FOE’s LTC facilities. The site provides the ability to search facilities alphabetically; individually; by quality metric; and/or by significance/importance. Stars on the Oklahoma nursing home web site are achieved by facilities participating and completing the 9 quality measures, each measure with their own set point. The Stars are the searchers’ tool to identify which areas may be important and significant to the family, consumer and/or loved one. Each quality measure will have a star rating from one to five.
