Historical

In addition to being a first rate facility overall, this nursing home also excelled in the area of short-term care, where it earned an A. Few facilities performed better in this category. Our short-term care ratings are crucial for prospective residents requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a vast scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, we found that this nursing home provided respectable levels of physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. This place outperformed the vast majority of facilities with 63.9 percent of its residents returning home. This is a significantly higher rate than most nursing homes.

Adding to its impressive category scores, this nursing home also excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned an A. Few nursing homes performed as well in this area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively insignificant. While this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Historical

Among its many impressive grades, this facility received an excellent nursing grade. In fact, we gave it a grade of A in that category. Nursing ratings are tied to quality and quantity of nursing care. This facility provided 3.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as employing a system of moving a resident more often.

Historical

The fourth category we graded is long-term care, where this nursing home received a grade of A-. This finished off a first-rate report card. Not many facilities earned an A- or higher in all four categories. Nursing homes that excel in this category typically are well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to residents. After considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents healthy. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
