Historical

On top of receiving a strong overall score, this nursing home also received an A+ inspection grade. This is based on its recent government inspections. An A+ in this area is one of the best complements we can pay to a facility. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that CMS did not consider any of these deficiencies to be an immediate threat to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Adding to its impressive profile, this nursing home also excelled in the area of nursing. In fact, we gave it an B+ for that category. There are numerous factors included in this area. Most of the datapoints are tied to staffing levels. This nursing home provides 3.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at certain nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these metrics as predictive measures of the quality of nursing care offered, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

Historical

The third category we looked at was long-term care. This nursing home was awarded an impressive long-term care score, with a B+ in this category. Nursing homes that excel in this category typically are well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to residents. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is far higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. This place also keeps its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 1.09 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a significantly lower hospitalization rate than most nursing homes.

Historical

The final category we scored is short-term care. This nursing home received a favorable short-term care rating in our assessment, with a B-. Even though this isn't as elite as many of its other scores, this is nevertheless an acceptable rating in that area. Our short-term care grade is often employed to grade a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To offer quality rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to offer better levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. One of this nursing home's strengths is registered nurse hours. We found that it offers more care from registered nurses to its residents than most facilities. The last statistic we assessed in this category is the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 35.8 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. This figure is below average.
