Most skilled nursing facilities (nursing homes) received one of three ratings – High Performing, Average, or Below Average – for both Short-stay Rehabilitation and Long-term Care. The ratings are based on a U.S. News in-depth analysis of publicly available data, including information that is not factored into Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services star ratings. Unlike those star ratings, the U.S. News ratings recognize that patients undergoing relatively short-term rehabilitation have very different needs from those who require longer-term care. Only 19% of U.S. nursing homes earned at least one badge.
