Historical

To pair with its strong overall grade, we gave this facility a grade of A for our inspections rating. Our inspection scores are tied to several items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that receive favorable grades in this category have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This place was assessed 8 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that CMS did not consider any of these deficiencies to pose an immediate risk to patient health or safety. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in this industry.

This facility also was superb in the category of short-term care, where we awarded it a grade of A. Very few nursing homes fared better in this category. Short-term care ratings are based on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a broad range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. This facility excelled at the highest level in two key staffing areas we looked at. In fact, it supplied about 50% more care from registered nurses and physical therapists than the average nursing home. Finally, we looked at the number of residents that were able to return home from this facility. We found that it performed better than most nursing homes in the nation with 53.3 percent of its patients able to return home.

Historical

This facility also was given a strong long-term care score. This actually ended up being this nursing home's third best category score. In that area, this facility received a grade of A. When facilities receive a score in this range in long-term care it typically means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 98.92857 percent of its residents. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients healthy. Finally, we looked at the facility's number of hospitalizations. Here we found that this nursing home had 2.27 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days.

Historical

The fourth category we graded was nursing, where this nursing home was given a grade of A-. This completed an elite report card. Only a select few nursing homes received an A- or better in every category. Our nursing score includes several data points, but the most important one is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This place provided 3.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. Approximately one-fourth of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are one of the most skilled nurses. This is an impressive ratio of skilled nursing care. We weight these hours more in computing our nursing scores. Finally, we also looked at some quality-based measures in this category. This facility fared well in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. For example, in terms of the number of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, this nursing home performed better than the national average. This is generally an indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Pressure ulcers can frequently be avoided with better nursing care.
