We also wanted to point out that this facility has received near flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A+ in this category. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like we were able to find deficiency counts for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility received an impressive grade of A in our nursing category. Our nursing rating is mostly tied to a facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can often be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Historical

This facility also received a high-end long-term care score. In fact, this ended up being its third best category grade. In that category, this facility received a grade of A-. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is much higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.99 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Historical

In the last area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for its short-term care score. This rounded out a first-rate profile. In our short-term care score, we seek to create a valuable barometer for rehabilitation. In doing so, we analyze the facility's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this facility submitted data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. It outperformed the majority of facilities in the country with 54.1 percent of its patients returning home. This is a better rate than most nursing homes.
