Historical

In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this facility also received A+ short-term care grade. Our short-term care grades are meaningful for individuals seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a wide spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Remarkably, this nursing home provides about 50% more services from physical therapists and registered nurses than most nursing homes we looked at. This is a very favorable sign. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients that returned home from this facility. On top of excelling in the area of physical therapy, we found that it performed as well as just about any nursing home in the country with 74.1 percent of its patients returning home.

Historical

This nursing home also earned an A+ inspection score, making it one of the rare facilities to receive multiple A+'s in our category grades. This is based on the facility's recent government inspections. An A+ in this area is one of the highest complements we can pay to a facility. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are relatively minor. This place was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe. This indicates that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate threat to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Historical

This nursing home also received an A+ nursing grade, making it one of the few nursing homes to receive multiple A+ category grades. The nursing rating analyzes quite a few datapoints, most of which are based on levels of nurse staffing. This place provided 8.8 hours of nursing care per patient each day, which is among the more impressive figures in the country. A significant portion of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are one of the more skilled levels of nurses. We are very impressed by both of these figures. On top of offering impressive levels of care, this facility also excelled in the quality-based metrics we looked at. By way of illustration, it performed as well as any nursing home in the country in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We view these datapoints as good indicators of the quality of nursing care provided.

Historical

In the final category we graded, this nursing home received high marks in the area of long-term care also. As a result, we awarded it an A+. This rendered it one of the few of facilities to receive A+'s in all four categories. Long-term care scores in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. It does not look like this nursing home provided information about vaccinations. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
