Heartland of Henry named as one of nation's best nursing homes

HENRY — Heartland of Henry has again been named as one of the best nursing homes in the United States by U.S. News & World Report.

Heartland of Henry has been named as one of the top skilled nursing centers for 2019-20. Heartland of Henry has an overall rating of better than average with a rating of High Performing in Short Stay.

U.S. News first introduced the Short-Stay Rehabilitation rating for 2018-19. The goal of this new rating is to provide patients and families with a clearer view of the quality of care provided by nursing homes to short-stay patients in need of intensive rehabilitation or skilled nursing services before they return home after a surgery, injury or illness.

Out of nearly 13,683 nursing homes that were evaluated, 2,250 earned a High-Performing rating in Short-Stay Rehabilitation. This year, the Short-Term Rehabilitation Rating newly incorporated several measures of quality, including consistency of registered nursing staff, use of antipsychotic medications, and success in preventing falls.

Since its inception in 2009, the U.S. News nursing home ratings have relied on data from Nursing Home Compare, a program run by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) which is the federal agency that sets and enforces standards for all nursing homes.

This year, U.S. News introduced a new approach to calculate the Overall Rating that now incorporates the Short-Term Rehabilitation Rating and Long-Term Care Rating from each nursing home to generate an overall score. All measures in both ratings were developed from publicly available date from CMS as of August 2019.
