Winfield, Iowa – December 14th, 2022 – Sunrise Terrace Nursing & Rehabilitation Center in Winfield, Iowa has been recognized as a Best Nursing Home for long-term care 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 care. Only 16% of U.S. skilled nursing facilities earned the “best Nursing Home” designation this year.
Sunrise Terrace is a CMS rated 5-Star facility and a top 10 ranked skilled nursing facility, out of 423 facilities, in the State of Iowa.
“To make the top 16% out of 15,000+ skilled nursing facilities across the United States is something we are very proud of. Our staff works hard each and every day to ensure Sunrise Terrace is able to provide a high quality skilled nursing facility to Winfield, Henry County, and Southeast Iowa” says Lindsay Remick, Administrator. “In the past, most residents and their families choose nursing homes based on location. However, as it should, this is changing and it is important to choose a facility where you or your loved one will receive the care they have earned and most importantly, deserve.” “Before choosing a skilled nursing facility, I encourage you to do your research on Medicare.gov’s Care Compare website, make a visit to the facilities you are considering, chat with the individuals who will be caring for your loved one, see how the residents are treated, judge how clean the facility looks, and just get that sense of what it would be like to live there.”
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 rating feature a new measure on weekend staffing and another new measure on infection rates that led to hospitalizations.
“Choosing the right nursing homes 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 resident care, safety, and outcomes. To calculate the Best Nursing Homes rating, 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 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 are able to return home.
