With an overall grade this high, it should come as no surprise that this nursing home performed well in the area of inspections, where it earned an A. Inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies an immediate risk to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Historical

Adding to its impressive resume, this nursing home also excelled in our short-term care category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category. Short-term care grades are commonly used to assess a nursing home's rehabilitation services. In order to have quality rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must feature better levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This place provided more registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most facilities. This is what we like to find when assessing a facility in this category. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who returned to the community from this facility. This place performed decently , with 46.5 percent of its patients able to return home.

Turning our third category, this facility was awarded a strong long-term care grade. In fact, we gave it a grade of A- in this category. When facilities receive this type of score in this category it is typically a good sign for patient care and suggests that the place is well-staffed with nurses aids. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients healthy. Lastly, we looked at the facility's number of hospitalizations. Here we found that this nursing home had 2.34 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days.

Historical

The final area we analyzed was nursing, where this facility received a B+. This wrapped up a very impressive report card. Not many facilities earned a B+ or higher in in each area we assessed. The nursing grade analyzes many factors, but the most important one is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home provided 3.5 hours of nursing care per patient per day. At least one fourth of this care was provided by registered nurses, which are highly skilled nurses. This is a high percentage of skilled nursing care. In computing our scores, we apply more weight to hours provided by registered nurses. Finally, we also assessed certain nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these data points as good measures of the quality of nursing care offered, since better care tends to reduce these problems.
