For the second straight year the Logan Regional Hospital’s Transitional Care Unit was honored with the Best Nursing homes in Utah award from U.S. News and World Report.
Usually performance in three areas determine the ratings: state conducted health inspections, nurse staffing and medical quality measurements.
Over the years rating the best nursing homes has involved researching each facility and rating it according to location, standard of care provided, cleanliness, staff competency and costs.
Normal regulations require nursing homes to have a sufficient staff, create care plans for every resident, satisfy a resident’s nutritional needs and control infections.
The U.S. News & World Report ratings profile each of the nearly 16,000 U.S. skilled nursing facilities whose data were posted in August 2017.
All rated homes accept residents covered by Medicare, Medicaid or both.
