Historical

On top of performing well overall, this facility earned a nearly flawless inspection report. Therefore, it received one of our highest grades in that area with a grade of A+. These inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this place had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This tells you CMS did not deem 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.

In addition, this nursing home also was given favorable long-term care scores in our assessment. In fact, we gave them one of our higher grades in that area, with a score of B. When facilities receive a grade in this range in long-term care it typically means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 95.76271 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is better than the average nursing home. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Historical

This facility is also strong in the area of short-term care, where it was awarded a score of B. It outpaced most nursing homes in this category. Our short-term care scores are crucial for patients needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes more skilled nursing. This means a vast spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. This facility was satisfactory in the two key staffing areas we looked at. It offered a reasonable level of care from both physical therapists and registered nurses. The last item we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that 42.9 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Historical

The final area we assessed is nursing, where this nursing home was given a grade of B. This facility did not turn out to have any weak grades. Our nursing rating consists of many data points, but the main consideration is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 3.9 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is more than what is offered by most nursing homes. Lastly, this place also performed well in several of the quality-based metrics we assessed. For example, in terms of the number of its residents sustaining falls which lead to serious injury, this place performed better than the national average. This is often a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
