The Osborn Pavilion in Rye, NY, is one of only 20 skilled nursing facilities (out of 617) in New York State to be recognized as a “Best Nursing Home” for 2020-21 by U.S. News & World Report. The Osborn Pavilion earned “Best Nursing Home” status by achieving a rating of “High Performing” (the highest possible rating) for both Short-Term Rehabilitation and Long-Term Care. The Osborn Pavilion is the only skilled nursing facility in Westchester County to achieve this “Best Nursing Home” rating.
U.S. News gives the designation of “Best Nursing Home” only to those organizations that satisfy its assessment of the appropriate use of key services and consistent performance in quality measures.
According to Matthew G. Anderson, President and CEO of The Osborn, “We are extremely honored to be awarded the designation of ‘Best Nursing Home’ by U.S. News & World Report. We are also very proud of our extraordinary staff that delivers high quality services to individuals each and every day as part of The Osborn’s overall continuum of care.”
Now in its 11th year, the U.S. News Best Nursing Homes rating and profile offers comprehensive information about care, safety, health inspections, staffing, and more for nearly all of the nation’s 15,000-plus nursing homes. The Best Nursing Home ratings reflect U.S. News’ exclusive analysis of publicly available data using a methodology defined by U.S. News that evaluates factors that it has determined most greatly impact patient and resident care, safety, and outcomes.
This year, to accompany the new ratings, nursing home profile pages were updated to include a patient safety summary that reflects COVID-19 data alongside other measurements of safety and related advice on choosing a home or facility amidst the pandemic.
“U.S. News strives to provide access to information that allows consumers to make educated decisions on all types of care,” said Ben Harder, managing editor and chief of health analysis at U.S. News. “Updating the profiles to include a patient safety summary that highlights COVID-19 data paired with other measures of care arms families, caregivers and patients with the information needed to make a decision that keeps safety at the highest priority.”
The Best Nursing Home finder features ratings on both long-term and short-term care. The Long-Term Care rating aims to provide prospective residents who need help with daily activities, and their families, with analysis and information regarding the quality of care provided by nursing homes. The rating includes data on staffing, success in preventing ER visits, and pneumonia vaccination rates, among other metrics. The short-term rating incorporates measures of quality including consistency of registered nurse staffing, use of antipsychotic drugs, and success in preventing falls.
