Historical

In addition to earning a quality overall grade, this nursing home also received excellent health inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our highest scores in that area, with an A. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this area most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Historical

To add to its elite achievements in other areas, we gave this nursing home a grade of A for our short-term care rating. Short-term care grades are generally used to measure a facility's rehabilitation services. To have quality rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to feature higher levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. This nursing home employs both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities employ these skilled professionals. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home, which as an area this facility performed much more favorably. We found that it outperformed the vast majority of nursing homes in the nation in this area with 61.5 percent of its patients returning home. This is a significantly higher rate than most facilities.

Historical

This nursing home also was awarded a very strong long-term care score. Indeed, this ended up being its third most impressive category score. In that category, this facility received a score of A-. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. Even though we determined this facility had an impressive quantity of nursing hours provided by nurses and other nursing staff, we found its vaccine statistics to be somewhat low. This facility gave the pneumonia vaccine to just 87.287025 percent of its patients. This is a statistic we would really like to see this facility improve. The last statistic we assessed is its hospitalization rate. We found that this nursing home had 1.78 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is middle of the pack in this area.

Historical

The final category we scored is nursing, where this nursing home was given a B+. This finished off an elite profile. Few facilities earned a B+ or higher in each of our categories. Our nursing score is based on the facility's nurse staffing levels. We look at both the levels of licensure of the nurses and the quantity of hours spent with residents. This nursing home offers high levels of nursing care, averaging 4 hours per patient on a daily basis. This is more nursing care than most nursing homes provide. Lastly, we also looked at nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these metrics as predictive indicators of the quality of nursing care provided, since better care tends to reduce these problems.
