State Surveys

Crescent Health Care is licensed by the State of Washington.  In order for us to participate in the federal Medicare and Medicaid programs we must be certified. This requires us to comply with the State’s rigid standards enforced by regular facility inspections and extensive evaluations.

State Survey Inspections:

  • Inspections are unannounced
  • Inspections are conducted by official state inspectors
  • Inspectors are health care professionals such as RNs and licensed social workers
  • A copy of each inspection report is sent to the nursing home after it is completed
  • If standards are not met, the nursing home must submit a plan of correction to the state
  • In some cases, a follow-up survey is made to verify deficiencies were corrected

From American Health Care Associations, LTC Trend Tracker, Crescent consistently has one of the lowest rehospitalization rate in the State!  This means that patients that come to Crescent have a lower risk of returning to the hospital than any other facility in the state.

From Medicare.Gov, Nursing Home Compare.  Crescent received the highest possible rating five stars.  Only 10% of Skilled Nursing Facilities in Washington State earn 5 stars.  The five star rating is comprised of ratings in Health Inspections, Staffing and Quality Measures.

When looking for a facility to recuperate, or to take a loved one, Crescent Health Care is the choice.
