Historical

Adding to this facility's impressive resume, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for our inspections rating. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this category most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. While this place had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor dings aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Historical

The last area we scored is long-term care. We awarded this nursing home one of our better scores in this area, with a B. While this was not as strong as many of this facility's other grades, it is nevertheless a perfectly acceptable grade. Facilities that do well in this category typically are well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to residents. In addition to offering elite levels of nurse staffing, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 98.47328 percent of its patients. This figure is also far higher than most nursing homes. Finally, we looked at the nursing home's number of hospitalizations. We found that this nursing home had 2.44 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days.
