Historical

In addition to a phenomenal overall grade, this facility also received A+ nursing grade. Nursing scores are based largely on levels of nurse staffing. This facility provided 7.1 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, which is among the more impressive totals in the country. A significant portion of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are one of the more skilled levels of nurses. We are really impressed by both of these figures. On top of offering high levels of nursing care, this nursing home was also above average in each of the major quality measures we assessed in this category. By way of illustration, it performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. These areas are generally reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care a facility offers.

Historical

Another reason we graded this facility so highly is that it was given an A+ short-term care grade. This is flat out as dominant as it gets in this category. In determining our short-term care scores, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The objective is to formulate a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Remarkably, this nursing home provides about 50% more services from physical therapists and registered nurses than most nursing homes we looked at. This is a very favorable sign. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from this facility. In addition to excelling in the area of physical therapy staffing, we found that it performed as well as just about any nursing home with 60.2 percent of its patients returning home.

Historical

This nursing home also received an A+ for its long-term care grade. Nursing homes that excel in this category typically provide patients with better supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. One of the datapoints we considered on top of this facility's impressive nursing hours is vaccinations. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 98.4127 percent of its patients. Vaccines are a great way to avoid unnecessary deaths and hospitalizations for seniors. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Historical

Turning to our inspection category, this nursing home excelled in that area, which is based on the nursing home's recent government inspection reports. In fact, we gave it an impressive grade of A for that category. This wrapped up its straight A report card. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be relatively minor. This particular nursing home received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
