Historical

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to be an immediate threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Historical

On the list of its many high-end grades, this facility was given a top-shelf short-term care grade. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A in that area. Our short-term care ratings are arguably more meaningful for patients in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically requires additional highly-skilled nursing. This means not just nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this nursing home submitted data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. This proved to be a real strength for this facility. We found that it outperformed the vast majority of facilities in the nation in this area with 60.5 percent of its patients returning home. This is a far higher rate than most nursing homes.

Historical

The third area we assessed was long-term care. Adding to its elite profile, this facility also performed well in this category. In fact, we awarded it a of A- in the area. Long-term care scores in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. Once we finished looking at the volume of care provided by nurses, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia tragically can be a deadly health condition for nursing home residents so we like it when a nursing home does not roll the dice on this issue. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 1.12 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes.

Historical

In the final category we scored, this facility received a very favorable grade of B+ in our nursing category. With this score, the facility wrapped up an elite report card. We weighed the levels of nurses at the facility, as well as the quantity of time those nurses worked with residents, in determining our rating in this area. This particular nursing home provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. 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. By way of illustration, in terms of the percentage of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, this facility performed better than the national average. This is generally an indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Pressure ulcers can many times be avoided with better nursing care.
