Historical

In addition to being a great nursing home overall, it also received A+ health inspections in recent years. Its inspections were nearly flawless. Our inspection scores account for a host of factors found on a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this area tend to have very few of these severe deficiencies. It does not appear that we have deficiency data for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

This nursing home also received an A+ for its nursing grade. Our nursing score is primarily based on a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This place provides an incredible 4.4 hours of nursing care per patient daily. Very few nursing homes provide this quantity of nursing care to their patients. Out of that total, many of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which is one of the most highly trained levels of nurses. On top of offering high levels of care, this nursing home was also above average in several of the major quality-based metrics we assessed in this category. It performed well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

This facility also was given a dominant long-term care score. Indeed, this turned out to be this facility's third strongest category grade. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of A-. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 96.174866 percent of its residents, which is higher than the average nursing home. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.4 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Historical

In the last category we scored, this nursing home was awarded a very strong grade of A- in our short-term care category. With this score, the nursing home topped off a straight A profile. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we size up a facility's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. This score is more often than not a reliable measure of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. 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 measure we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home rather than remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
