Historical

To pair with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for its nursing grade. When facilities receive this kind of grade in this category it is typically a good sign for resident care and indicates that the facility is well-staffed with nurses and aids. After assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients out of the hospital. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. While it had 2.48 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, its risk adjusted statistic was better than most nursing homes due to it having more complex patients.

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility excelled in our nursing rating. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this category.

Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area.

Historical

Adding to this facility's impressive resume, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this area most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Historical

The final category we analyzed is short-term care, where this facility received a grade of B+. This topped off an elite report card. Only a select few nursing homes received a B+ or better in all four categories. Short-term care ratings are vital for individuals seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a wide spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. We were not able to find registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. The last statistic we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.
