Emmetsburg Care Center recently received a 5-star overall rating, according to the U.S. News and World Report. The announcement was made by ABCM Corporation, a long-term care leader in Iowa.
U.S. News displays data about nearly every care center in the United States, updating the information every quarter and using it to rate and rank the homes. As reported in the news magazine, about 24 percent of all nursing homes in Iowa earned an overall five-star rating.
The rankings are built on data from Nursing Home Compare, a consumer website run by the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The data for Nursing Home Compare comes from regular state health inspections and from the homes themselves. Based on the information, CMS assigns one to five stars across three major rating elements of health inspections, nurse staffing, and quality of care plus an overall rating.
