Historical

In addition to receiving an elite overall rating, this facility earned an A+ inspection rating. This is based on its recent government inspections. An A+ in this area is one of the best complements we can offer a nursing home. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This tells you that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies to create an immediate threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Historical

Adding to its high-end achievements in other areas, we gave this facility a score of A- for its short-term care grade. In our short-term care category, we strive to create a sound barometer for rehabilitation. In this process, we assess the nursing home's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. 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. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who ultimately returned home from this facility. In addition to excelling in the area of physical therapy staffing, we found that it fared as well as just about any nursing home in the country with 62 percent of its patients returning home.

Historical

This facility received a strong long-term care grade as well. We awarded it one of our higher scores in that category with a score of B+. When facilities receive a grade in this range in this category it generally means it has plenty of staff and is a quality place to live on a permanent basis. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 95.87629 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia can be a life or death health condition for nursing home residents so we like it when a nursing home doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Historical

The last category we rated was nursing. We gave this facility a decent score in this category, with a B-. Although this is not on par with some of its other scores, it is nevertheless not a major area of concern. Our nursing score is mostly based on a facility's nurse staffing. With 4.2 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, this nursing home surpassed the majority of facilities. Finally, our nursing scores also weigh quality measures, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed better than average in this area.
