Holland Home has been named as a Best Nursing Home for Short-Term Rehabilitation (Breton Rehabilitation and Living Centre) and Long-Term Care (Raybrook Manor) for 2023-24 by U.S. News & World Report.
The annual Best Nursing Homes ratings, now in their 14th year, assist prospective residents and their families in making informed decisions in consultation with their medical professionals about where to receive short-term or long-term nursing home care.
For 2023-2024, U.S. News rated more than 15,000 nursing homes on care, safety, infection rates, staffing, and health inspections. Only 19% of U.S skilled nursing facilities earned the “Best Nursing Home” designation this year.
“Choosing the right nursing home based on care needs and comfort is a critical decision for prospective residents and their families,” said Zach Adams, health data engineer at U.S. News. “The Best Nursing Homes ratings highlight nursing homes that excel in short-term rehabilitation and long-term care needs.”
The Best Nursing Homes methodology factors data such as resident care, safety, and outcomes. To calculate the Best Nursing Homes ratings, U.S. News evaluated each nursing home’s performance using a variety of data obtained from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Both short-term and long-term ratings include data on the consistency of registered nurse staffing, use of antipsychotic drugs, and success in preventing ER and hospital visits. The long-term care rating also includes measures of whether a home changed ownership and how well they were staffed on weekends. The short-term rehabilitation rating also includes measures of a home’s success in preventing falls, preventing serious infections, and making sure residents are able to return home.
