Historical

One of the many reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is it earned an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical area. Arguably the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Facilities with higher scores in this category most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Historical

Adding to its strong resume, this facility also received an excellent nursing score, with a grade of A-. Nursing scores are based in large part on quantity of nursing care available. This nursing home provided 4.2 hours of nursing care per patient daily, which is among the better figures in the country. A significant percentage of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are one of the more skilled levels of nurses. We were very impressed by both of these figures. In addition to providing high levels of nursing care, this place was also above average in several of the major quality-based metrics we looked at in this category. For example, it performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. These statistics are generally reliable measures of the quality of nursing care a facility provides.

Historical

This facility also was given a fine long-term care score. Indeed, this turned out to be its third best category score. In that category, this facility received a grade of A-. Facilities that excel in long-term care tend to provide residents with more supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. After looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 95.268814 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients healthy. This nursing home was also able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had only 1.27 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a substantially better hospitalization rate than the average nursing home.

Historical

Switching gears to the final area, this nursing home was given an extremely favorable short-term care rating. We gave it a grade of B+ in this area, wrapping up one of our more favorable report cards. In our short-term care assessment, we seek to create a sound gauge for rehabilitation services. In this process, we assess the nursing home's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. When we assessed this facility's nursing hours, we found it offered substantially more care from registered nurses than most nursing homes. The last metric we assessed in this area is the number of patients that eventually returned home from the facility. This place performed better than most nursing homes in this area with 55.9 percent of its patients returning home.
