Historical

To pair with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for its nursing grade. In computing our short-term care scores, we look at a nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. This rating is generally a fair assessment of the facility's rehabilitation. This place excelled in two key staffing areas we assessed. The facility supplied about 50% more care from registered nurses and physical therapists than the average nursing home. This is usually a great sign. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return home from this nursing home. On top of excelling in the area of physical therapy hours, we found that it fared as well as just about any nursing home in the nation with 75.9 percent of its residents returning home.

Historical

We also awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for its nursing grade. Nursing grades are mostly associated with a nursing home's nurse staffing. This place boasts a really impressive 6 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, of which a significant percentage was provided by registered nurses. This is one of the most highly trained levels of nurses. On top of looking at levels of nursing care, we also looked at a few quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these metrics as good measures of the quality of nursing care offered, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

Historical

Continuing with its amazing performance, this nursing home also earned an A+ inspection score. This is based on its recent inspection reports. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Unfortunately, we weren't able to track down deficiency data for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Historical

The final category we analyzed was long-term care, where this facility was awarded an A-. This rounded out a very impressive report card. Few facilities received an A- or higher in every single category. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 92.5926 percent of its patients. This is somewhat less than we were hoping for but still a reasonably acceptable figure. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nevertheless, some nursing homes may need to rely on these medications due to having more residents suffering from Alzheimer's or other dementias.
