Three Cheers for Briarcliffe Manor Skilled Nursing & Rehabilitation! We are thrilled to announce that U.S. News & World Report, the global authority in hospital rankings and consumer advice, announced the 2022-2023 Best Nursing Homes ratings and we are again included in this prestigious list. Read more about Briarcliffe Manor’s 2022-2023 rating here.
Each year, more than 15,000 nursing homes are evaluated on important markers like care, safety, infection rates, staffing and health inspections. For the first time- the report includes measurements on weekend staffing and infection rates that led to hospitalizations.
Zach Adams, senior health data engineer at U.S. News stated: “Choosing the right nursing home based on care needs and comfort is a critical decision for prospective residents and their families. The Best Nursing Homes ratings highlight nursing homes that excel in short-term rehabilitation and long-term care needs. This year, newly available data on weekend staffing and infection rates that led to hospitalizations provides even more information about how nursing homes rate when it comes to the safety of their residents.”
To calculate the Best Nursing Homes ratings, U.S. News evaluated each nursing home’s performance using a variety of data obtained from CMS. Both short- and long-term ratings include data on consistency of registered nurse staffing, use of antipsychotic drugs, and success in preventing emergency room and hospital visits. The long-term care rating also includes measures of whether a nursing home changed ownership and how well they were staffed on weekends. The short-term rehabilitation rating also includes measures of a nursing home’s success in preventing falls, preventing serious infections and making sure residents are able to return home.
