We also would like to note that this nursing home excelled in our nursing grade. We awarded them an A+ in this area. We scrutinized the skill-level of nurses at the facility, as well as the quantity of hours those nurses worked with patients, in determining our score in this category. This nursing home provided 4.7 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, which is among the better figures in the country. A significant percentage of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are one of the most skilled levels of nurses. We are really impressed by these figures. On top of providing impressive levels of care, this facility also excelled in the quality-based metrics we looked at. By way of illustration, it performed as well as any facility in the country when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We view these statistics as predictive indicators of the caliber of nursing care offered.

Historical

This facility performed well in the area of short-term care. As a result, we awarded it a score of A for that category, which happens to be one of our most favorable scores. Our short-term care ratings are based in part on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a vast range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, in addition to other forms of therapy. One of this nursing home's strength is that it offers more hours of care from registered nurses to its residents. Finally, we looked at the number of patients that who were able to eventually return home from this facility. It performed as well as just about any nursing home with 56.7 percent of its patients returning home.

Historical

The third category we graded was long-term care. This facility was awarded an impressive long-term care score, with a B in this area. Nursing homes that receive this kind of score in this category tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure residents are well cared for. One of the factors we considered after this nursing home's impressive nursing hours was vaccines. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 98.1043 percent of its patients. Vaccines are a great way to avoid unnecessary hospitalizations for the elderly. Lastly, we looked at the nursing home's number of hospitalizations. With 1.97 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home was just about middle of the pack in this area.

Turning to the last category we assessed, this nursing home received a decent grade in the area of inspections as well. In fact, we gave it a grade of B- for that category. We believe that one of the most important factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. We especially look at the severity of the deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
