This category is generally a solid assessment of the nursing home's rehabilitation. Remarkably, this nursing home provides about 50% more services from physical therapists and registered nurses than most nursing homes we looked at. This is a very favorable sign. The final statistic we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community.

This facility also excelled in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of A. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. We assessed the licensure of nurses employed by the nursing home, in addition to the number of hours those nurses were with residents, in calculating our grade in this area. This nursing home boasts a really impressive 5.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day, of which a significant percentage was provided by registered nurses. This is one of the most highly trained levels of nurses. On top of offering high levels of care, this nursing home also performed well in several of the quality measures we assessed.

Historical

Adding yet another impressive category grade, we gave this nursing home an impressive grade of B+ for our inspections rating. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are rare in the industry.

Historical

The next category we looked at was long-term care, in which this facility was given a grade of B-. This proved to be this nursing home's worst area. This is still nothing to be ashamed of. With our long-term care score, we focus more on the volume of services offered by a nursing home, as well as a few qualitative measures. On top of offering above average levels of nursing care, this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents healthy. Lastly, we looked at its number of hospitalizations. We found that this facility had 3.37 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Although this figure is somewhat concerning, this statistic can be skewed for some nursing homes due to the preexisting medical conditions of patients.
