The federal government has given 149 nursing homes in Pennsylvania – The Gardens at Easton among them – a five-star rating after tweaking the way it assesses thousands of nursing homes nationwide.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services last month revised its inspection process and began providing improved staffing details and new quality metrics. The changes were aimed at providing more transparent and meaningful information about the quality of care that residents receive.

It was a big day for the residents at Nursing and Rehabilitation at the Mansion in Sunbury. Dorothy Zsido turned 103 years young. Employees threw her a party.
“He surprised me. You surprised me. They surprised me. Everyone surprised me,” Dorothy said.
Dorothy grew up in Mount Carmel with more than a dozen brothers and sisters. She worked at a shirt factory and raised four children. Her son Gerald was at the party. “For 103, it’s amazing. It really is. She could–with the help of her walker–she just gets up and goes,” Gerald said.
