Historical

On top of earning a great overall grade, this facility also received an A+ in short-term care. Short-term care scores are based in part on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a broad spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. This nursing home is substantially above the national average in terms of its quantity of both physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents. In fact, it provided about 50% more care per resident from both of these care providers than the average facility provided. These are generally good indicators of quality short-term care. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that it outperformed the vast majority of facilities in the nation with 56.3 percent of its patients returning home.

Historical

This nursing home also received an A+ nursing grade, making it one of the few nursing homes to receive multiple A+ category grades. Nursing ratings are primarily associated with the facility's nurse staffing. This facility provides an incredible 4.7 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. Out of this total, many of the hours were provided by registered nurses, which is one of the most highly trained levels of nurses. On top of offering impressive levels of nursing care, this place also excelled in several of the quality measures we looked at. With under five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the state in this category.

Historical

We also would like to point out the fact that this facility was given a first-rate grade of A in our long-term care area. Facilities that do well in this category typically provide residents with more supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. In addition to providing very favorable levels of nurse staffing, this facility gave the pneumonia vaccine to 99.01961 percent of its patients. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents healthy. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 1.6 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than the average nursing home.

Lastly, we looked at inspections. This facility earned a very impressive score in this category. In that category, we gave this nursing home a B+. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to create an imminent threat to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
