Historical

On top of being a first rate facility overall, this nursing home also excelled in nursing, where it received an A. Few nursing homes fared better in this area. In computing a facility's nursing grade, we weigh the quantity of hours nurses are seeing residents as well as the skill levels of those nurses. This facility boasts a really impressive 4.8 hours of nursing care per resident each day, of which a significant percentage of those hours were provided by registered nurses. This is one of the most highly highly skilled levels of nurses. This is among the highest totals of nursing hours we found. In addition to providing high levels of care, this place was also above average in several of the major quality-based metrics we looked at in this category. It performed well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Historical

Adding to its impressive category grades, this facility excelled in the category of inspections, where it earned an A. Not many nursing homes performed better in this area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively minor. While this facility had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This tells you that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple relatively minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Historical

Turning our third area, we gave this facility a grade of A- for its short-term care score. This is a very strong rating. In our short-term care score, we seek to craft a sound barometer for rehabilitation. In doing so, we assess the nursing home's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. This nursing home elevated its grade in this category by offering more care from registered nurses to its residents than the average facility. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients that were able to return home from this nursing home. It performed better than most facilities in the nation with 50.1 percent of its patients returning home.

Historical

In our final category, we gave this nursing home a grade of A for our long-term care score. This wrapped up a first-rate report card. Facilities that receive this kind of score in long-term care tend to provide consistent around the clock care to make sure patients are well cared for. This facility's vaccination data weren't as strong as its number of nursing hours per resident. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to just 90.04576 percent of its residents. We'd love to see some improvement herein this statistic next year. This nursing home also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 1.36 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days.
