America’s “Best Nursing Homes 2021” highlights the nation’s top nursing homes based on performance data, peer recommendations and the handling of the current COVID-19 situation, relative to in-state competition. Nursing homes in the 20 states with the highest population size, according to The United States Census Bureau (2020) were included in the study.
- Included are single branches of nursing homes (e. g. Okeechobee Health Care Facility), no nursing home groups or chains.
- A nursing home had to have a capacity of at least 150 certified beds to be considered.
- Nursing homes that are included in the Special Focus Facility (SFF) program were not considered.
- Nursing homes had to achieve a threshold score, calculated by using performance data (see chapter 2a).
- Nursing homes had to meet defined selection criteria, based on their officially reported data regarding COVID-19 (see chapter 1c).
Out of 10,647 nursing homes in the 20 considered states, 822 nursing homes met the criteria described above. Of these, the best 400 Nursing Homes were awarded by Newsweek and Statista, resulting in a varying number of nursing homes awarded per state: New York had the most nursing homes awarded with 70, while North Carolina and Massachusetts are represented with 5 nursing homes each.
