Historical

With an overall grade this high, it should come as no surprise that this facility excelled in the area of inspections, where it received a grade of A. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite insignificant. This facility received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to be an immediate threat to patient health or safety. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.

Historical

Adding to its impressive resume, this nursing home also excelled in our nursing category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category. Nursing ratings are mostly based on the nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides an impressive 4 hours of nursing care per resident daily. Finally, this facility also excelled in the quality-based metrics we looked at. It performed as well as any facility the nation in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Historical

The third category we looked at is long-term care. This nursing home received a very positive long-term care score, with a grade of B+ in this category. Nursing homes that do well in this category tend to be well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to patients. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 99.0625 percent of its patients, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia sadly is often a deadly health condition for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a nursing home does not leave its residents vulnerable. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 1.19 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home.

Historical

The final area we assessed was short-term care. We gave this facility a decent grade in this area, with a B-. Even though this was not as dominant as many of this facility's other grades, it is still nothing to be ashamed of. Our short-term care scores are based on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a broad scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, in addition to other types of therapy. Fortunately, this nursing home offers both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities offer both. The final statistic we assessed in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 35.6 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.
