Historical

In addition to earning a great overall score, this facility excelled at short-term care. In fact, we gave it a grade of A for that category. Our short-term care grades are considered to be most meaningful for individuals in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. This includes not just nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. When we assessed this facility's nursing hours, we found it offered more care from registered nurses than most nursing homes. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents that were able to return home from this facility. This place performed as well as just about any facility in the country with 63.9 percent of its residents returning home.

Historical

Adding to its impressive category scores, this facility also excelled in the category of inspections, where it earned an A-. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This facility was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate risk to resident 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 area of long-term care, where it received a grade of A-. Not many facilities fared better in this category. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. After looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 99.75124 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is much higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 1.53 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes.

Historical

Switching gears to our next area, this nursing home received an excellent nursing grade. While this wasn't quite as good as several of its other category grades, this is nevertheless one of our more impressive grades a facility can receive. We weighed the levels of nurses at the nursing home, as well as the quantity of hours the nurses worked with patients, in calculating our score in this area. This facility provided 3.9 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is an impressive figure which typically leads to higher quality care. Finally, we also looked at nursing quality measures in determining our nursing scores. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these data points as good indicators of the caliber of nursing care provided, since better care tends to reduce these problems.
