Historical

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this facility an impressive grade of A for our long-term care rating. Nursing homes that excel in this category typically provide patients with more supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. In addition to looking at the elite level of care provided by nurses aids and other staff at this facility, we also were impressed by the nursing home's record for vaccinations. For example, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 99.689445 percent of its residents, which is very impressive. Finally, we looked at the nursing home's number of hospitalizations. Here we found that this nursing home had 3.74 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. While this admittedly wasn't as strong as some of its other scores in this area, this statistic can be skewed for some facilities due to some of the preexisting medical conditions of residents.

Adding to its impressive grades, we gave this facility a grade of A for inspections. Inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Historical

This facility is also strong in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B. It outperformed most nursing homes in this category. There are a number of factors included in this grade. Most of these factors are tied to the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This nursing home provided 4.2 hours of nursing care per patient per day, which is among the better totals in the country. A significant portion of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are one of the most skilled levels of nurses. We are really impressed by both of these figures. On top of providing impressive levels of care, this place also performed well in several of the quality-based metrics we looked at. By way of illustration, in terms of the number of its patients suffering falls resulting in major injury, this place performed as well as any facility the nation. Avoiding serious falls is generally an indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Historical

The last category we graded was short-term care. This facility received an above average short-term care rating in our assessment, with a C. While this is not quite as elite as some of its other category grades, this is nevertheless an acceptable grade in this area. In the area of short-term care, we endeavor to assess indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We look at a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. This nursing home elevated its grade in this category by offering more care from registered nurses to its residents than the average facility. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 32.1 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually below the national average.
