Historical

On top of receiving a strong overall rating, this facility received an A+ inspection score. This grade is based on its recent government inspections. An A+ in this category is one of the highest complements we can pay to a facility. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with higher scores in this area most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few relatively minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Another reason we rated this nursing home so highly is that it received an A+ nursing grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this category. Our nursing rating is primarily associated with the facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home offers 3.8 hours of nursing care per patient each day, of which more than one hour of those were provided by registered nurses. This is one of the most highly trained nurses. In determining our nursing scores, we add more weight to hours performed by registered or licensed nurses. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Historical

This facility also was awarded a impressive short-term care grade. In fact, this is this nursing home's third most impressive category grade. In that category, this facility received a score of A-. Short-term care grades are vital for people in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. This includes a wide spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. When we assessed this facility's nursing hours, we found it offered substantially more care from registered nurses than most nursing homes. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients that who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. This place performed respectably in this area with 46.4 percent of its residents returning home.

Historical

The final area we analyzed is long-term care, in which this nursing home was given a B. Although this proved to be its worst category score, this is nevertheless a quality grade. Nursing homes that receive this kind of grade in this category typically provide consistent around the clock care to make sure patients are well cared for. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 95.84905 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. This facility was also able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had just 1.11 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a substantially better hospitalization rate than the average nursing home.
