Woodside Village at Valley Senior Living on 42nd, a skilled nursing care community, has been recognized as a “Best Nursing Home” for long term care with a high performing rating for 2022 to 2023 by U.S. News & World Report, a global leader in quality rankings. The annual “Best Nursing Homes” ratings assist prospective residents and their families in making informed decisions about where to receive short-term or long-term nursing home care. “We are extremely honored to achieve this ranking by the U.S. News & World Report. It is a testament to the care offered to residents by our team of expert caregivers, while ensuring the utmost in resident safety,” said Gina Roller, Administrator, Valley Senior Living on 42nd.
For 2022 to 2023, U. S. News rated more than 15,000 nursing homes on care, safety, infection rates, staffing and health inspections. To calculate the “Best Nursing Homes” ratings, U.S. News evaluated each nursing home’s performance using a variety of data such as resident care, safety, and outcomes obtained from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Short-term and long term ratings include data on consistency of registered nurse staffing, use of antipsychotic drugs, success in preventing emergency room and hospital visits, success in preventing falls, preventing serious infections, and making sure residents are able to return home. For the first time, the “Best Nursing Homes” ratings feature new measures on weekend staffing and infection rates that led to hospitalizations.
