Historical

To pair with its strong overall grade, we awarded this facility an A for the area of inspections. Our inspection ratings weigh a host of factors found on a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category usually have very few severe deficiencies. While this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are rare in the industry.

Among this facility's other strengths is its elite nursing grade. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of A. Nursing grades are largely tied to a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This place provides an incredible 4.7 hours of nursing care per patient each day. Very few nursing homes provide this quantity of nursing care to their patients. Out of that total, many of the hours were provided by registered nurses, which is one of the most highly trained levels of nurses. On top of providing impressive levels of care, this facility also excelled in several of the quality-based metrics we looked at. With below five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the country in this category.
