Historical

One of the many reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received an A+ nursing grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this category. When determining a facility's nursing score, we weigh the quantity of hours nurses commit to patients as well as the skill levels of those nurses. This place provided 5.1 hours of nursing care per resident per day, which is among the highest totals in the country. A significant percentage of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are one of the more skilled levels of nurses. We were very impressed by both of these statistics. On top of offering high levels of nursing care, this nursing home also excelled in several of the quality-based metrics we looked at. With below five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it fared as well as any facility Virginia in this category. This is usually an indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Many pressure ulcers could be prevented by providing better nursing care and a policy of turning patients more frequently.

Historical

This top notch facility also performed well in the area of short-term care, where we awarded it a score of A+. Very few facilities performed better in this category. In our short-term care assessment, we attempt to craft a sound measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we look at a nursing home's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. This place provides more services with registered nurses and physical therapists than most facilities we looked at. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents that ultimately returned home from this facility. On top of excelling in the area of physical therapy, we found that it performed as well as just about any nursing home in the nation in this area with 60.6 percent of its patients returning home.

Historical

This facility also received a first-rate long-term care score. In fact, this turned out to be this facility's third strongest category score. In that category, we awarded this facility a score of A. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 96.21212 percent of its residents, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia is too frequently a life or death health condition for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a facility does not roll the dice on this issue. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Historical

Another impressive feature for this nursing home is its inspection rating. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a score of A, wrapping up its straight A performance. Inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
