Historical

In addition to being a first-rate facility overall, this facility also excelled at short-term care, where it received an A+. Short-term care grades are critical for people requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a vast scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Remarkably, this place provides approximately 50% more hours of services from registered nurses and physical therapists than most nursing homes we looked at. This is usually an encouraging sign. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who ultimately returned home from this nursing home. In addition to excelling in the area of physical therapy hours, we found that it performed as well as just about any facility in the country in this area with 77.6 percent of its residents returning home.

This nursing home also received an A+ inspection score, making it one of the few facilities to receive multiple A+'s in our categories. This score is based on the nursing home's recent inspection reports. These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. It doesn't appear that we were able to find deficiency data for this facility. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Historical

In addition, this facility received high marks in the area of nursing. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A+. Our nursing grade analyzes the facility's nurse staffing levels. We look at both the levels of skill of the nurses and the amount of time spent with residents. This facility provides an incredible 5.9 hours of nursing care per resident each day. Out of that total, many of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which is one of the most highly highly trained levels of nurses. In addition to offering high levels of nursing care, this nursing home also excelled in the quality measures we looked at. For example, it performed as well as any facility in the state in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these datapoints as reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care being provided.

Historical

The last area we scored was long-term care. We gave them another impressive grade of A+ in this area. This wrapped up a spectacular report card of all A+'s. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. We weren't able to track down this place's vaccination data. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
