Historical

In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this facility also received A+ short-term care grade. Our short-term care grade is generally employed to score a facility's performance with rehabilitation. To have good rehabilitation services, facilities generally must provide better levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. One of this nursing home's strengths is registered nurse hours. We found that it offers more care from registered nurses to its residents than most facilities. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who returned to the community from this facility. It outperformed the overwhelming majority of facilities in the country in this area with 68.8 percent of its patients returning home. This is a significantly higher rate than most nursing homes.

Historical

This nursing home also received an A+ inspection score, making it one of the few nursing homes to receive multiple A+'s in our category grades. This grade is based on the nursing home's recent inspections. An A+ in this category is one of the best complements we can pay to a facility. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively minor. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Historical

Adding to its impressive resume, this nursing home also excelled in our nursing category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category. There are several subcategories within this area. Many of the datapoints reflect the quantity of nurse staffing. This nursing home provided 4.9 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This was one of the higher figures we found. In addition, a significant portion of this care was provided by registered nurses, which are highly skilled nurses. On top of providing impressive levels of nursing care, this nursing home also performed well in several of the quality measures we assessed. In terms of the percentage of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, this nursing home outpaced the national average.

Historical

The last area we scored was long-term care, where this facility was awarded a grade of A-. This rounded out a very favorable report card. Very few facilities received an A- or higher in each of our categories. When facilities receive this kind of score in this category it is usually a good sign for resident care and suggests that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses and aids. On top of patient-friendly nursing hour statistics, this facility's vaccination records was superb as well. In fact, this nursing home vaccinated 97.77778 percent of its patients against pneumonia. This combination proved to be effective as this place keeps its patients out of the hospital. Although it had 1.8 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted score was better than the majority of nursing homes due to it having some more complicated patients.
