Historical

This facility received a quality overall score as described above, but we especially wanted to point out its nearly flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A in this area. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this category typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Unfortunately, it does not look like we were able to find deficiency counts for this nursing home. We wish we had more data for this nursing home. Without information regarding deficiencies, it was challenging to assess it in the inspections category.

We also gave this facility a grade of A- for our short-term care grade. In forming our short-term care scores, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The purpose is to devise a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. We were pleased to find that this nursing home employs both registered nurses and physical therapists. The same can't be said for all nursing homes. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents that returned home from this facility. It fared as well as just about any nursing home in the country with 65.2 percent of its patients returning home. Most facilities are below 50 percent in this statistic.

Historical

This facility received an impressive long-term care score as well. We awarded it one of our better scores in that area with a grade of B+. Nursing homes that excel in long-term care typically provide residents with better supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 98.85434 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients out of the hospital. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1.06 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home.

Historical

Turning to the next category, this facility was awarded an excellent nursing grade. This nursing home did not turn out to have any identifiable weaknesses. We assessed the qualifications of nurses at the facility, as well as the quantity of time the nurses were with residents, in determining our score in this area. This nursing home averages 3.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at a few quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place excelled in these areas, with excellent scores for minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. These areas are generally reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care a nursing home provides.
