ROCKVILLE, MD – Ingleside at Rock Creek, Westminster at Lake Ridge, Ingleside at King Farm part of the Ingleside family of life plan communities, were recognized in U.S. News & World Report’s recently released list of 2021-22 Best Nursing Homes.
All three communities earned High-Performing ratings, Ingleside at Rock Creek receiving for short-term rehabilitation and long term-care: and Westminster at Lake Ridge and Ingleside at King Farm for short-term rehabilitation.
“We are honored to be recognized again in the list of top nursing homes,” said Chief Operating Officer Christine L. Podles, MA, HSE, LNHA. “At Ingleside our short- and long-term care programs are facilitated by skilled nursing staff who are dedicated to the resident’s rehabilitation and recovery.”
According to U.S. News & World Report, there are new requirements to earn a High-Performing rating, including federal CMS data (published by October 14) which must list the home as having a COVID-19 staff-vaccination rate of at least 75 percent. Of the more than 15,000 U.S. skilled-nursing facilities evaluated by U.S. News, only 13 percent have earned even a single Best Nursing Homes badge.
The Short-Term Rehabilitation ratings are given after analyzing the quality of care the facility provides to residents requiring rehabilitation care for short visits. The Long-Term Care rating is evaluating how well the nursing home provides care to residents who need daily assistance with both medical and nonmedical needs.
