Historical

One of the many reasons this place ended up being a quality nursing home is it received an A+ inspection grade. This is as good as it gets in this very important category. Inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Historical

Adding to its first-rate resume, this facility also was given a superb short-term care grade, with a score of A. In computing our short-term care ratings, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our goal is to devise a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. This place provided more physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most facilities. This is what we like to find when assessing a facility in this category. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that it outperformed the vast majority of facilities in the nation with 61.8 percent of its residents returning home.

Historical

This nursing home also performed well in the area of long-term care, where it received a score of A-. Very few facilities fared better in this category. Facilities that excel in this category typically provide patients with closer supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. On top of offering elite levels of nursing care and other staffing, this nursing home gave the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. This statistic is also much higher than the average nursing home. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. While it had 1.96 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted statistic was better than most nursing homes since it had some more complex patients.

Historical

The next area we assessed is nursing. We awarded this facility a decent grade in that area, with a B-. Even though this is not as favorable as some of this facility's other grades, it is still not a poor grade. We looked at the qualifications of nurses employed by the facility, as well as the number of hours those nurses spent with residents, in calculating our grade in this category. This facility provided 4.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is an impressive figure. Finally, we baked a few quality measures into our nursing grades. This place was relatively weak in two of the areas we focus on, with below average scores for minimizing its patients' pressure ulcers and major falls.
