Historical

This nursing home received a quality overall grade as described above, but we especially wanted to point out its nearly flawless inspections in recent years. We awarded it an A in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some can be quite 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

We also gave this nursing home a grade of A for our short-term care grade. Our short-term care ratings are thought to be most important for folks needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically requires additional skilled nursing. This means not just nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. We weren't able to locate information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This proved to be a real strength for this facility. This place outperformed the vast majority of facilities in this area with 68.4 percent of its residents returning home.

Historical

This facility received a very good nursing grade this year as well. It received one of our better scores in that category with a grade of B+. The nursing rating assesses many subcategories, many of which are based on nursing hours. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Historical

Moving on to the next area, this nursing home was awarded an acceptable long-term care grade. Even though this isn't nearly as impressive as a few of its other category grades, this is really a middle of the pack score. In determining our long-term care scores, we analyze the personal care offered to the facility's patients. After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. We were optimistic to find that this nursing home vaccinated 96.9353 percent of its patients for pneumonia. The last statistic we looked at is the nursing home's hospitalization rate. Here we found that this nursing home had 1.84 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is not too bad.
