Each year across the country, Nursing Homes are evaluated by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid. This evaluation is then posted online for patients and families to view, www.medicare.gov.
In 2009, US News & World Report decided to make that information more accessible to individuals. They realized that millions of people across the country would one day need to have a conversation about how to help their loved ones and wanted to help in choosing a good facility.
These ratings look at various components that portray vital information of individuals in the particular facility. They include: Nursing Home performance over a years time, a strong emphasis on medical quality measures, a review of levels of therapies received, health inspections, and staffing. Then they are rated on a scale of top performing to poor.
This year, Highland Ridge Rehab Center received a top performance rating. You can find more details about the facility by visiting https://health.usnews.com/best-nursing-homes.
