Historical

In addition to receiving a great overall rating, this nursing home received an A+ inspection grade. This grade is based on its recent inspection reports. An A+ in this area is one of the highest complements we can offer a facility. Inspection ratings weigh a host of factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better grades in this category generally have few severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Historical

This facility was given impressive grades in the area of long-term care as well. Indeed, it received one of our most elite grades in that area with a score of A-. When facilities receive this kind of score in long-term care it is a good sign for resident care and suggests that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses aids. Once we concluded our assessment of the amount of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 99.53052 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia is too frequently a deadly health condition for nursing home patients so we prefer when a nursing home doesn't leave its residents vulnerable. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1.67 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than most nursing homes.

Historical

Another strong feature for this facility is that it received an impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B. When computing a facility's nursing grade, we assess the number of hours nurses commit to patients as well as the skill levels of the nurses. This nursing home provides 2.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures 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 facility the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by having a system of moving a patient more frequently.

Historical

The final category we rated was short-term care, where this nursing home was awarded a grade of B-. This actually is this nursing home's least impressive category. This is nevertheless not a major area of concern. In the area of short-term care, we strive to qualify indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Fortunately, this nursing home offers both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities offer both. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This proved to be more of a strength for this facility. In fact, we found that it outperformed the majority of facilities with 54.8 percent of its residents returning home.
