Pacifica Nursing and Rehabilitation is once again recognized by U.S. News and World Report as one of the Best Nursing Homes in the Nation
Online PR News – 10-December-2016 – Pacifica, CA – On November 16, 2016, U.S. News and World Report released their list of the top rated skilled nursing facilities in the nation. Pacifica Nursing and Rehab Center is happy to be named one of the best nursing homes for the fourth year in a row on top of their 5-star rating by Medicare.
To determine which nursing homes qualify, U.S. News and World Report assigned each skilled nursing facility a rating ranging from 1.0 to 5.0. In order to qualify for “Best Nursing Home,” the facility needs to receive a rating of 4.5 or better. Ratings are determined by taking an average of the five-star rating awarded to a facility by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services over the course of a year. U.S. News and World Report emphasizes the medical quality of a facility by capping the overall rating a facility can receive if they have low ratings in medical quality measures and similarly capping the rating for homes that frequently deliver the lowest amount of intensive rehabilitation therapy they can while still qualifying for enhanced reimbursement from CMS.
U.S. News and World Report awarded less than 13% of nursing homes the “Best Nursing Home” award. Jacob Beaman, administrator at Pacifica Nursing and Rehab Center says, “We are truly honored to be recognized again by US News and World Report as one of the nation's top Skilled Nursing Facilities for 2016-2017. We have an amazing team across all departments at Pacifica Nursing and Rehab and I want to thank each of them for their tireless effort to provide only the very best care. We will continue to focus on providing exceptional nursing and rehabilitative services for every patient we have the privilege to serve.”
