Historical

This facility received high grades in the area of nursing as well. In fact, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A-. Nursing ratings are primarily tied to the nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides an incredible 4.7 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is far better than what is offered by most places. Lastly, this place also performed well in several of the quality measures we looked at. For example, in terms of the percentage of its patients sustaining falls leading to serious injury, this nursing home performed as well as any facility in the nation. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

In computing our short-term care scores, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The purpose is to devise a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. This nursing home employs both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities employ these skilled professionals. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This place performed decently in this area, with 48.4 percent of its residents returning home.
