Historical

In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this nursing home excelled in our shot-term care category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category. Long-term care ratings in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 99.655174 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is significantly higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. The last datapoint we assessed is the nursing home's hospitalization rate. Here we found that this facility had 1.8 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is middle of the road in this area.

Historical

Adding to its impressive category scores, this facility excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned a grade of A. Not many nursing homes performed as well in this area. Our inspection grades are tied to many pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that receive favorable grades in this area typically have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Historical

To complement its strong performance in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. We analyzed the skill-level of nurses employed by the facility, in addition to the quantity of hours those nurses spent with patients, in computing our grade in this area. This nursing home averages 3.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at certain nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these metrics as predictive measures of the quality of nursing care being provided, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

Historical

The last area we scored was short-term care, where this nursing home was given a B. This actually proved to be this nursing home's least impressive category. A nursing home could be doing a lot worse when it's poorest score still rates higher than most other nursing homes. In computing our short-term care ratings, we analyze a facility's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other types of therapists. This rating is often a meaningful measure of the facility's rehabilitation services. One of this nursing home's strengths is physical therapy hours. We found that it offers more hours with physical therapists to its residents than most facilities. The final statistic we looked at in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that 42.4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
