On November 19, 2019 by Jodi Boyne
Benedictine Health System announced 14 communities were recognized in the 2019-2020 U.S. News and World Report “Best Nursing Homes” report as high-performers in overall quality in both the nursing home and short-stay rehabilitation categories.
More than 15,000 nursing homes across the country were evaluated and received one of five Overall Quality ratings – High Performing, Better than Average, Average, Worse than Average, or Poor. Those with sufficient relevant volume also received one of three Short-Stay Rehabilitation Overall Quality ratings – High Performing, Average, or Below Average.
The ratings are based on U. S. News and World Report’s own in-depth analysis of data from the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, including success in preventing ER visits, pneumonia vaccination rates, and staffing levels, specifically concerning federal standards for registered nurses.
“These communities have acted to improve the quality of the care and services they provide. Their results were achieved though high intention, diligent effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution," said Jeri Reinhardt, RN, Benedictine vice president of clinical services and performance excellence.
