Historical

One of the many reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received an A+ long-term care grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this category. Nursing homes that do well in long-term care typically are well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. On top of assessing the impressive volume of care provided by aids and other staff at this facility, we also were happy with the facility's vaccination data. For example, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is very impressive. This combination proved to be effective as this nursing home keeps its patients out of the hospital. It had only 1.32 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days.

Historical

This facility also received an A+ inspection score, making it one of the rare nursing homes to receive multiple A+'s in our categories. This score is based on the place's inspection reports. Inspection grades account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with better scores in this category tend to have very few severe deficiencies. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Historical

Adding to its strong resume, this facility also received an excellent nursing score, with a grade of A-. Our nursing grade is largely associated with a facility's nurse staffing. This place provides an incredible 4.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is far better than what is provided by most facilities. Lastly, this facility also excelled in several quality-based metrics we looked at. With less than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, this place performed as well as any nursing home the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Many pressure ulcers can be avoided by providing better nursing care and having a protocol of moving residents more often.

Historical

The last category we graded is short-term care. We awarded this facility a solid score in this area, with a B-. Even though this wasn't as dominant as several of this nursing home's other grades, it is nevertheless nothing to be ashamed of. Our short-term care grade is generally employed to grade a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. In order to provide highly scored rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to have better levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Fortunately, this nursing home offers both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities offer both. The final measure we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 42.1 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.
