The Osborn Earns Highest Ratings from U.S. News & World Report
The Osborn Pavilion skilled nursing and short-stay rehabilitation center is proud to be named one of New York’s top performing nursing homes by U.S. News & World Report. U.S. News evaluated over 15,000 nursing homes across the country, including 619 licensed facilities in New York State. Of those, The Osborn Pavilion was one of nineteen that received the top rating in both categories, ‘Overall’ and ‘Short-Stay Rehabilitation.’ In fact, The Osborn Pavilion was among only four facilities in Westchester County to receive this highest-performing rating in both categories.
The 2018-19 report is the first time U.S. News has rated facilities on Short-Stay Rehabilitation, assessing a facility based on whether the amount of rehabilitation provided was determined by reimbursement or by patient-centered needs.
The Osborn Pavilion is an 84-bed skilled nursing facility, with all-private rooms, that provides skilled nursing care, as well as both short–term inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation. The Pavilion is an integral part of The Osborn’s continuum of care.
How Facilities are Rated
The U.S. News & World Report Nursing Home Finder draws on public data provided by the as the basis for its Nursing Home Compare rating system. The Osborn has the highest overall quality rating of five stars from CMS, based on quantitative assessments of state-conducted health inspections. These rigorous inspections assess general cleanliness, food preparation processes, infection control, medication management, and residents’ overall quality of life.
The U.S. News survey places additional emphasis on staffing, specifically the amount of time that nursing staff spends with each patient. The Osborn received the five-star rating from CMS for both total nurse staffing and registered nurse staffing.
Ben Harder, Chief of Health Analysis at U.S. News, explained this new approach, “We understand that nurse staffing is among the most important predictors of nursing home quality. With our new methodology and Short-Stay Rehabilitation rating, we have taken several steps to ensure that nursing homes that consistently provide high quality care to residents are highlighted.”
Selecting a Care Community
Sources like the Nursing Home Finder and the CMS website can be helpful to families in the process of evaluating long-term skilled nursing or short-term care facilities for their loved ones, especially if distance is a factor. These free tools allow users to search for highly-rated nursing homes by location, insurance coverage, memory care, and size.
While quantitative data is an important part of the decision process, the reputation of a facility is an important reflection by those with first-hand experience. Interested families are encouraged to visit a community they are considering early in the process, to observe the quality of care and the daily interactions between residents and staff.
