Historical

One of the reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. In that area, we gave this facility an A+. The nursing grade considers several subcategories. The most important factor is the quantity of hours nurses spend with residents. This place boasts an impressive 3.9 hours of nursing care per patient per day, of which more than an hour of these were provided by registered nurses. This is among the most highly skilled levels of nurses. Finally, this facility also excelled in the quality-based metrics we assessed. It performed as well as any facility the state in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Adding to its impressive grades, we awarded this facility an A- for our inspections rating. Our inspection grades weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category generally have few of these severe deficiencies. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple relatively minor dings are not something to panic about.

Historical

Additionally, this nursing home also was given favorable short-term care grades this year. Indeed, we gave it one of our stronger scores in that area, with a grade of B+. Short-term care grades are generally used to gauge a facility's performance with rehabilitation In order to have quality rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to have higher levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. One of this place's strengths is it offers more than seven hours of care per week from registered nurses to each patient. This is really the gold standard in this metric, as it's approximately 1.5 times higher than the average nursing home's level of registered nurse staffing. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients that ultimately returned home from this facility. We found that 39.8 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Historical

Moving on to our next area, we awarded this facility a D in the area of long-term care. This is the facility's least impressive category score. Unfortunately, this category pulled down the facility's overall profile a bit. For prospective patients in need of a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. After considering nursing hours and other staffing provided by this nursing home, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. With a long-term care grade in this range, it is surprising to learn that this nursing home fared reasonably well in both statistics. In fact, this nursing home vaccinated 95.945946 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is higher than most nursing homes. To our surprise, this nursing home also keeps its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.46 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
