Historical

In addition to being a great overall grade, this facility also received A+ health inspections in recent years. Its inspections were virtually flawless. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Historical

Another reason we rated this nursing home so highly is that it received an A+ nursing grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this category. Our nursing rating is primarily associated with a facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility boasts an impressive 4 hours of nursing care per patient each day, of which more than one hour of those hours were provided by registered nurses. This is among the most highly trained levels of nurses. Lastly, this facility also excelled in the quality measures we assessed. It performed as well as any facility the state in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Historical

Adding to its remarkable profile, this facility also was given a dominant long-term care score, with a grade of A. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in this category tend to provide consistent around the clock care to ensure patients are kept in good health. One of the statistics we considered after nursing hours is vaccines. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to 97.297295 percent of its patients. This is a proven method to avoid unnecessary hospitalizations for the elderly population. This place was also able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 1.44 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days.

Historical

Turning to the next area, this nursing home also excelled in the short-term care category. We awarded it an A- in this category. This wrapped up truly elite profile. In forming these short-term care scores, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The goal is to devise a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Remarkably, this place provides roughly 50% more hours of services from registered nurses and physical therapists than most facilities we assessed. This is usually a very favorable sign. The last datapoint we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. It performed respectably with 48.5 percent of its residents able to return home.
