Historical

In addition to receiving a strong overall score, this facility received an A+ inspection rating. This score is based on its recent government inspections. An A+ in this area is one of the highest complements we can pay to a facility. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively insignificant. While this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor dings are not something to panic about.

Historical

Among its many elite grades, this facility was awarded first-rate short-term care score. In fact, we gave it a score of A in this category. Our short-term care grade is typically used to judge a facility's performance with rehabilitation. To provide high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to provide better levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. One reason for this place's strong score in this area is it offers more care from registered nurses to its patients than the average facility. The last metric we looked at in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Historical

This facility also excelled in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of A. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. In determining our nursing grades, we analyze both staffing levels and the training levels of those nurses. This place provides an incredible 5.6 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. Out of this total, many of the hours were provided by registered nurses, which is one of the more highly trained levels of nurses. On top of offering high levels of care, this place also fared well in several of the quality-based metrics we assessed. By way of illustration, in terms of the number of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, this facility outpaced the national average. This is often an indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls. Pressure ulcers can many times be avoided with better nursing care and a policy of regularly moving residents to prevent bed sores.

Historical

The last area we graded is this nursing home's poorest area. However, even its lowest point would likely be a highlight for many facilities. We gave it a favorable grade of B in long-term care. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in this category tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure patients are well cared for. On top of elite nursing hour statistics, this nursing home's vaccination record is first-rate as well. Indeed, this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. This combination proved to be successful as this facility was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 1.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a significantly better hospitalization rate than the average nursing home.
