Skilled Nursing Facilities’ Earn Top Ranking in Short-Term Care

December 19, 2022

Three Hartford HealthCare Senior Services skilled nursing facilities are among the best in the country for short-term rehabilitation care according to high-performance rating from U.S. News & World Report.

The facilities are Southington Care Center, Jefferson House and Jerome Home (affiliated with Hartford HealthCare Senior Services).

The Best Nursing Homes rating process factors in resident care, safety and outcomes. Each skilled nursing facility was evaluated on its performance using a variety of data including consistency of registered nurse staffing, use of antipsychotic drugs and success in preventing emergency room and hospital visits. The short-term rehabilitation rating also includes measures of a nursing home’s success in preventing falls, preventing serious infections and making sure residents can return home.

For 13 years, the U.S. News Best Nursing Homes ratings system has evaluated more than 15,000 facilities on care, infection rates, safety, staffing and health inspections. This is the first year the ratings measured weekend staffing and infection rates leading to hospitalizations.
