US News and World Report has notified Pleasant View Nursing Home, Rock Port, Mo., that they have received the 2017-2018 Best Nursing Homes recognition.  A U.S. News and World Report spokesperson explained in an email notification that the tightening of the requirements to earn status as a U.S. News Best Nursing Home means that the award “is given only to those homes that demonstrate consistent performance in national quality measures over a year…and to homes that demonstrate appropriate use of key services.”
According to TCC Vice-President–Business Development, Kristine Gibson, “We are so excited for Pleasant View to receive this recognition. Atchison County is fortunate to have a healthcare facility that puts quality first. Pleasant View continues to maintain their CMS 5-star rating, has received the AHCA Bronze Quality Award and now to be recognized on a national level by U.S. News and World Report truly speaks to the quality of care the staff provides to the residents. It is a well-deserved honor and we are proud of the staff for the compassion and dedication to providing such wonderful care!”
U.S. News and World Report researched over 16,000 nursing homes across the country and compared data that reflects the following: 1.) the nursing home’s performance over a period of 12 months, 2.) a strong performance in medical quality measures, and 3.) quality measured in the utilizations of rehabilitation therapy. These homes were given a score 1-5. Only 2,005 nursing homes achieved “Best status by earning a U.S. News rating of at least 4.5. According to Kristine, “Pleasant View received a 5 rating which puts them in the top 9% of nursing homes in the country!”
