Historical

One of the many reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it received an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. Our inspection ratings weigh several factors found on a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this area usually have few of these severe deficiencies. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like we have deficiency data for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing score. In fact, nursing proved to be its second best category grade. In that area, we gave this nursing home a grade of A+. We weighed the skill-level of nurses at the facility, as well as the quantity of time the nurses were with residents, in computing our score in this area. This facility boasts a really impressive 4.6 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, of which a significant percentage was provided by registered nurses. This is one of the most highly trained levels of nurses. On top of providing impressive levels of nursing care, this nursing home also excelled in several of the quality-based metrics we looked at. With under five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the nation in this category. This is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls. Many pressure ulcers could be prevented by providing better nursing care and having a protocol of turning patients even once per day.

Historical

The third category we analyzed is long-term care. This facility also received an A+ long-term care grade, making it one of the few facilities to be given several A+ category grades. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in long-term care it generally means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. In addition to really impressive nursing hour statistics, this nursing home's vaccination record was superb also. In fact, it vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.88 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Historical

In our final category, we awarded this facility a grade of A+ for our short-term care grade. This topped off a very strong profile. Our short-term care grades are vital for people requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a broad spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. One of this nursing home's strength is that it offers more hours of care from registered nurses to its residents. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return home from this nursing home. It outperformed the overwhelming majority of nursing homes in the country in this area with 58 percent of its patients returning home.
