Lady Lake, Florida Dec 5, 2022 (Issuewire.com) – Villages Rehab & Nursing Center has been
recognized as a Best Nursing Home for short-term rehabilitation for 2022-2023 by
U.S. News & World Report.
The annual Best Nursing Homes ratings, now in their 13th 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. Only 16% of U.S skilled nursing facilities earned the “Best
Nursing Home” designation this year.
Villages Rehab & Nursing Center rated has a rating of 5 out of 5 for quality care
and has a short-term rehabilitation rating of High Performing. Additionally,
Villages Rehab & Nursing Center’s focus on patient-directed care has earned the
Gold-Excellence in Quality Award from the American Health Care Association and
National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL).
“I am so proud of our tremendous long-term staff and providers that work
together so we can accomplish incredible patient care,” said Debbie Brazill,
Administrator, and owner of Villages Rehab & Nursing Center. “We have staff that
truly care, and it shows in everything they do”.
For 2022-2023, U. S. News rated more than 15,000 nursing homes on care, safety,
infection rates, staffing, and health inspections. For the first time, the Best Nursing
Homes ratings feature a new measure on weekend staffing and another new
measure on infection rates that led to hospitalizations.
“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 residential 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- 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 can return to their homes. For more
