We also wanted to emphasize that this nursing home has received near flawless inspections recently. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite insignificant. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Historical

One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. This proved to be its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this facility an A+. Nursing grades are mostly associated with a facility's level of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 3.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at a few quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home excelled in these areas, with excellent scores for minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. These areas are generally reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care a facility provides.

Historical

The next category we assessed is short-term care. Contributing to its impressive profile, this nursing home also performed well in that category. In fact, we awarded it a of A for that area. Our short-term care ratings are presumably more critical for folks requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires more skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not only nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. One of this nursing home's strengths is registered nurse hours. We found that it offers more care from registered nurses to its residents than most facilities. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who returned home from this facility. We found that it outperformed most nursing homes in the country with 54.1 percent of its residents returning home. This is a higher rate than most facilities.

Historical

The next category we rated ended up being this facility's worst area. Nevertheless, even in its weakest link we still gave it an acceptable grade of B- for long-term care. Our long-term care scores are more meaningful for patients in need of more traditional services related to personal care. After we finished looking at the volume of nursing care, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. We were optimistic to find that this nursing home vaccinated 97.2043 percent of its residents for pneumonia. This facility keeps its residents out of the hospital. It had just 1.44 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days.
