Historical

On top of being a first rate facility overall, this facility performed well in our inspections category, where it earned a grade of A+. Very few facilities fared this well in this area. Inspection grades account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this area usually have few of these severe deficiencies. This facility was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate risk to resident safety or health. We should point out that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.

The final area we rated was this facility's weakest area. Nevertheless, even in its weakest link we still gave it a respectable grade of B- in long-term care. With our long-term care score, we look at the amount of services provided by a nursing home, along with some qualitative measures. In addition to above average nursing hour statistics, this nursing home's vaccination records are favorable as well. Indeed, this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia. This combination proved to be effective as this nursing home also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 1.12 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a significantly better hospitalization rate than most nursing homes.
