Allied Services and Heinz Rehab Transitional Rehab Units receive national ranking for Short-Stay Rehabilitation

The U.S. News & World Report recently released the 2019-2020 Best Nursing Homes report. To produce the report and its online Nursing Home Finder tool, U.S. News evaluated more than 15,000 homes nationwide. The ratings draw on data from Nursing Home Compare, a program run by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), the federal agency that sets and enforces standards for nursing homes.

For the second consecutive year, Allied Services Transitional Rehab in Scranton and Heinz Transitional Rehab in Wilkes-Barre received the survey’s top rating of “High Performing” for Short-Stay Rehabilitation, earning them the title of “Best Nursing Homes.” They were two of only three facilities in Northeastern Pennsylvania to receive this ranking. The Short-Stay Rehabilitation rating was introduced in 2018 to provide patients with a clearer view of the quality of care provided by nursing homes to short-stay patients in need of intensive rehabilitation or nursing services before they return home after a surgery, stroke, accident or illness.

This year the Short-Term Rehabilitation Ratings newly incorporate several measures of quality, including consistency of registered nurse staffing, use of antipsychotic drugs and success in preventing falls.
