Historical

In addition to performing well overall, this facility earned a nearly flawless inspection report. Therefore, it earned one of our best scores in that area with a grade of A+. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

This nursing home also fared very well in the category of short-term care, where we awarded it a score of A-. Not many facilities received a better grade in this category. In our short-term care score, we attempt to create a sound gauge for rehabilitation services. In this process, we look at a nursing home's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. This nursing home excelled in the two key staffing areas we looked at. The facility supplied about 50% more care from physical therapists and registered nurses than the average nursing home. This is typically an excellent sign. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that it outperformed the majority of facilities in the nation in this area with 55.1 percent of its residents returning home. This is a better rate than most facilities.

Historical

Compounding its strong resume, this facility also was given a superb long-term care score, with a grade of A-. For residents in need of a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. One of the datapoints we considered on top of nurse's aid hours is vaccines. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this nursing home provided data regarding vaccinations. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

The next category we assessed is nursing. We gave this nursing home a decent grade in that area, with a grade of B-. Although this wasn't as high as many of its other grades, it is still a middle of the pack score. There are several factors included in this area. Most of these factors relate to the quantity of nurse staffing. According to its staffing data, this place provided an average of 4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Approximately one fourth of this care came from registered nurses, which are highly trained nurses. Both of these figures are higher than average. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based metrics, such as minimizing major falls. This nursing home performed admirably in this subcategory.
