Historical

To pair with a favorable overall grade, we gave this nursing home an A+ for inspections. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are quite insignificant. This nursing home received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies an immediate threat to resident safety or health. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in the industry.

Contributing to its dominant resume, this nursing home also performed well in our short-term care area. In fact, it received a grade of A for the category. In our short-term care score, we endeavor to forge a meaningful gauge for rehabilitation services. In this process, we look at a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. One of this nursing home's strengths is registered nurse hours. We found that it offers more care from registered nurses to its residents than most facilities. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who returned home from this nursing home. This place outperformed the vast majority of nursing homes in the country in this area with 58.8 percent of its patients returning home.

Adding to its strong resume, this facility also received an excellent nursing score, with a grade of A-. Our nursing rating considers a variety of factors. The most heavily weighted variable is the quantity of hours nurses spend with patients. This facility provided 3.1 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Historical

Switching gears to our final area, this facility was given a respectable long-term care grade. Even though this wasn't as impressive as several of its other scores, this is still not a terrible score. In a long-term care environment, the nursing home's primary goal is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. After considering the quantity of nursing care, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. We were optimistic to discover that this nursing home vaccinates 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1.51 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes.
