Historical

In addition to being a first rate nursing home overall, this nursing home also excelled in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of A+. Few nursing homes performed better in this category. In computing a nursing home's nursing score, we consider the amount of time nurses are with residents and the skill levels of those nurses. This place boasts a really impressive 6 hours of nursing care per resident per day, of which a significant portion of those hours were provided by registered nurses. This is one of the most highly highly skilled levels of nurses. This is among the better totals of nursing hours we were able to find. In addition to providing impressive levels of nursing care, this place was also above average in each of the major quality-based metrics we looked at in this category. It performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

Historical

Adding to its impressive category grades, this nursing home excelled in the category of inspections, where it earned an A. Not many nursing homes performed as well in this area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively minor. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. We should point out that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.

Historical

The last category we rated is long-term care. We gave this nursing home one of our more favorable grades in that area, with a grade of B. Although this wasn't as high as several of its other grades, it is still an excellent grade. Long-term care scores in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. This facility's vaccination data weren't as favorable a few of its other statistics in this category, such as its nursing hours. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to just 65.21739 percent of its residents. We'd like to see some improvement in this area next year. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
