Historical

In addition to being a first rate facility overall, it also excelled in inspections, where it received an A. Not many nursing homes performed better in this area. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this area typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. While this facility had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This means the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. We should note that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.

We also want to alert you to the fact that this nursing home received a first-rate grade of A- in our short-term care category. Our short-term care grade is often employed to measure a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. In order to provide good rehabilitation services, facilities generally must feature better levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. One of this nursing home's strength is that it offers more hours of physical therapy per week to its residents. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that it outperformed the vast majority of nursing homes in the country in this area with 64.2 percent of its residents returning home.

Historical

Adding to its impressive resume, this nursing home also excelled in our nursing category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category. In computing a nursing home's nursing grade, we weigh the number of hours nurses commit to residents and the level of licensure of the nurses. This nursing home provides 3.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can often be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Historical

The last category we assessed is long-term care. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a solid grade of B-. This is this nursing home's least impressive category. For prospective patients seeking a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. We were optimistic to find that this facility vaccinated 94.101875 percent of its residents for pneumonia. This nursing home keeps its residents out of the hospital. It had only 1.52 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days.
