U.S. News & World Report: Johnson Center is Five Star, Among the Best in the Nation

Posted on 
December 22, 2020

U.S. News & World Report recently recognized The Johnson Center at Falcons Landing as one of the best skilled nursing care facilities in the nation in its 2020-2021 report. Receiving a five out of five rating for both Short-Term Rehabilitation and Long-Term Care, places the Johnson Center in the top 5% of the United States’ 15,000 nursing homes.

“We’re so proud to have received a Five Star High Performance rating — the highest distinction from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services — especially amidst a global pandemic,” said Leah Daily, Sales & Marketing Director. “This honor speaks to our long history of service to seniors across the continuum of care, and the systems we have in place to handle any crisis.”

As the U.S. News methodology report stated, “COVID-19 has highlighted a long-standing fact: Which nursing home a person receives care in can dramatically influence their odds of staying healthy … nursing facilities also vary in quality and safety, and this source of variation mattered to residents and patients before the pandemic, matters to them during the pandemic, and will continue to matter to them after the pandemic recedes.”

What makes a good long-term care community?

U.S. News & World Report ranks nursing homes using an evaluation that looks at patient safety and care, using standards such as vaccination percentages, prevention of falls, patient-centered therapies, qualified personnel, staffing ratios and rate of complaints, among other factors. The report recommends asking these questions when considering the quality of a facility:

  • Is the home licensed and certified by the state?
  • What is the facility's safety record? Have complaints been filed with the state agency that oversees it?
  • Is the nursing home clean and well-maintained?
  • Do the residents look well cared for?
  • What is the ratio of nurses to residents?
  • What services are provided and how much do they cost?
  • How long has the nursing home been in business and how experienced is leadership?
  • Is the food good?
  • Are the rooms suited for an ill or disabled senior? Look for things like grip bars in the bathrooms and railings on the beds.
  • What social activities are offered?
  • Does the nursing home specialize in caring for seniors with dementia?

We consider it an honor to care for our residents at The Johnson Center and will continue to work toward five-star results for them.
