Historical

On top of receiving a strong overall grade, this nursing home performed well in short-term care. In fact, we awarded it an impressive grade of A- for that category, which is one of our highest grades. Short-term care scores are vital for people requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates more highly-skilled nursing. This includes a vast spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. We were not able to track down registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that it outperformed the majority of facilities with 53.6 percent of its residents returning home. This is a better rate than most facilities.

This facility also excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of B+ for that area, which is one of our best scores. This is one of the few facilities with an overall grade in this range which received multiple category grades this high. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite minor. This particular nursing home received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Another strong feature for this facility is that it received an impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B.

These areas are generally reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care provided.
