New Jersey Nursing Home Rankings – MIXED REVIEWS
Each year U.S. News & World Report publishes an annual ranking of nursing homes across the country. While plenty of New Jersey nursing homes ranked near the top for quality of care, too many ranked towards the bottom. According to the report, approximately 33 nursing homes in New Jersey received a “one star” rating and 103 received a “two star” rating by the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Services. Nursing homes that receive one or two star ratings are NOT doing their job to ensure their facilities are appropriately clean and safe, their staff is fully trained and qualified to take care of residents and their residents are receiving the care and treatment they are entitled to by law. The report will help New Jersey residents select nursing facilities that have a reputation of providing above-average care. Likewise, New Jersey residents can use this report to ensure they avoid choosing a facility that has consistently ranked poorly in the spectrum of quality of care.
