Historical

In addition to being a first rate nursing home overall, this facility also performed well in the area of long-term care, where it received a grade of A+. Few nursing homes fared better in this area. Nursing homes that excel in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. One of the factors we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccines. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 97.95322 percent of its patients. Vaccination is a great way to minimize unnecessary hospitalizations for the elderly population. The last datapoint we looked at was the nursing home's hospitalization rate. We found that this place had 2.39 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days.

Historical

This facility also received an A+ inspection grade, making it one of the few facilities to receive multiple A+'s in our categories. Inspection ratings weigh several factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better scores in this area tend to have very few severe deficiencies. This facility was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe. This tells you that CMS didn't deem any of these deficiencies to create an imminent threat to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Historical

This facility's next best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. This wasn't quite on par with some of its other category grades mentioned above. We looked at the qualifications of nurses employed by the nursing home, as well as the number of hours those nurses worked with residents, in determining our score in this category. Based on the CMS data, this nursing home offers 3.8 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed admirably in this datapoint. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses aids to assist its patients.

Historical

This nursing home's weakest area is short-term care, which is the last area we scored. Unfortunately, we gave it an F for this area. Despite several impressive scores in other categories, this score is still somewhat concerning so we wanted to draw your attention to it. Our short-term care ratings are probably most important for individuals requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically utilizes more skilled nursing. This includes not just nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. In this nursing home's case, we found that it provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who ultimately returned home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 24.7 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
