This nursing home also received an A+ nursing grade, making it one of the few nursing homes to receive multiple A+ category grades. There are a variety of subcategories included in this grade. Many of the datapoints relate to nurse staffing. This facility provided 5 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This was one of the higher figures we found. Furthermore, a significant portion of this care was provided by registered nurses, which are highly skilled nurses. In addition to offering high levels of nursing care, this facility also excelled in the quality-based metrics we looked at. It performed as well as any nursing home in the state in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

This facility also received a nearly flawless inspection report. As a result, it received one of our top grades in that area with an A+. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some can be relatively minor. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Historical

In the last category we scored, this nursing home was given an impressive grade grade of B+ in our short-term care category. With this grade, the facility finished off a very favorable profile. Our short-term care scores are thought to be more meaningful for those needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates more highly-skilled nursing. This means not only nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. One of this place's strengths is that it offers more than seven hours of care per week from registered nurses per patient. This is the gold standard for this area, as it's roughly 50% higher than the average nursing home's level of registered nurse staffing. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from this facility. We found that 18 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
