One reason for this facility's strong score in this category is that it provides more care with registered nurses to its residents than the average nursing home.

This place outperformed the vast majority of facilities in the country with 69.3 percent of its patients returning home.

This nursing home averages 3.8 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this place excelled in some of these areas.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also excelled in the category of inspections, where it earned a grade of B+. Few nursing homes performed better in this category.

Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This nursing home was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate threat to resident health or safety. We should point out that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in the industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The last area we graded was long-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a very solid grade of B. Nursing homes that do well in long-term care typically provide patients with more supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. One of the factors we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours was vaccines. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 94.01709 percent of its patients. Vaccination is a proven method to minimize unnecessary deaths and hospitalizations for the aged 65 and up population. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.74 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
