The Nursing Home Association of New Jersey released its list of the top 100 nursing homes in the United States on Thursday.
According to the NHAJ, nursing homes are “primary care institutions” that serve as a home for elderly, chronically ill and mentally ill patients, and are considered “nurseries” under federal law.
These facilities provide home care to people in the community.
The nursing home association has ranked these facilities based on “the number of nursing homes per 100,000 residents in the state.”
That is, they took into account population and cost factors and ranked them based on how much they cost to operate.
The NHA, which is comprised of many state-based groups, said the rankings reflect the health of the country’s elderly population.
“Nursing home care is the largest and most expensive part of care for our elderly,” NHA president and CEO Susan Smith said in a statement.
“While these hospitals, nursing home owners and state governments must continue to innovate, we are proud of the fact that they are leading the way in the advancement of nursing home care.”
A study released in March showed that nursing home operators in the northeast had the highest per-capita costs in the country, according to the New York Times.
The rankings came after a spate of nursing house deaths in the Northeast this year.
The New York Daily News reported that the state is experiencing an outbreak of sepsis after the coronavirus outbreak, and that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has warned residents not to leave their homes for extended periods of time.
The list of top 100 hospitals in the nation was compiled by the NCAJ in partnership with the National Center for Home Health Research, which collects data on health care facilities.
