Historical

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility excelled in our nursing rating. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. Our nursing score is mostly tied to a nursing home's nurse staffing. This facility provides an impressive 3.9 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Of this total, nearly one quarter of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which is one of the most highly trained levels of nurses. Finally, this facility was also above average in each of the major quality measures we looked at in this category. For example, it performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. These areas are generally reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care a nursing home provides.

Historical

Compounding its impressive assessments in other areas, we gave this nursing home a score of A for its short-term care score. Our short-term care ratings are based on the facility's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a broad scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. This nursing home elevated its grade in this category by offering more care from registered nurses to its residents than the average facility. The final metric we assessed in this area is the number of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that it fared better than most facilities in this area with 53.5 percent of its patients returning home.

Historical

We awarded this nursing home an impressive grade of A- for inspections. Inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies an immediate risk to resident safety or health. We should point out that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in the industry.

Historical

Switching gears to the next category, this facility was awarded an excellent long-term care score. Although this is not quite as elite as a few of its other category grades, this remains one of the more favorable grades a facility can receive. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in long-term care it generally means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients, which is much higher than the majority of nursing homes. The last datapoint we assessed was the nursing home's hospitalization rate. Here we found that this nursing home had 2.24 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days.
