We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility excelled in our nursing rating. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. Our nursing score is based on the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We look at both the levels of skill of those nurses as well as the amount of time spent with patients. This place boasts a really impressive 8.8 hours of nursing care per patient per day, of which a significant portion of those hours were provided by registered nurses. This is one of the most highly skilled levels of nurses. This is among the higher totals of nursing hours we found. In addition to providing impressive levels of care, this place also excelled in the quality measures we looked at. For example, it performed as well as any nursing home in the country in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these areas as predictive measures of the quality of nursing care provided.

Historical

This nursing home also received an A+ inspection grade, making it one of the rare places to receive multiple A+'s in our categories. This is based on the nursing home's recent inspections. Our inspection grades weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this area generally have very few severe deficiencies. This facility was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies an immediate threat to resident health or safety. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.

This is an excellent sign. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home.
