Historical

In addition to a phenomenal overall grade, this facility also received A+ nursing grade. Our nursing score is largely associated with the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This place provides an incredible 6.1 hours of nursing care per patient per day. Out of that total, many of the hours were provided by registered nurses, which is one of the most highly trained levels of nurses. On top of providing impressive levels of care, this place also performed well in several of the quality measures we assessed. In terms of the number of its patients suffering falls leading to major injury, this place performed as well as any facility the country.

Historical

This facility also received an A+ inspection grade, making it one of the few nursing homes to receive multiple A+'s in our categories. Inspection ratings are based on datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent government inspections. Places that excel in this category have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. 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

Another strength for this facility is short-term care, where it was given an A+ grade. This is just about as elite as it gets in this category. Short-term care ratings are critical for residents needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates more skilled nursing. This includes a vast spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. One reason for this nursing home's favorable grade in this area is that it offers more care from registered nurses than a typical nursing home. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients that ultimately returned home from this facility. It fared as well as just about any nursing home in the country in this area with 74.7 percent of its residents returning home. Most nursing homes are below 50 percent in this statistic.

Historical

In the final category, this facility also received an A+ for its long-term care grade. This topped off a remarkable report card of straight A+'s. Nursing homes that excel in long-term care typically provide patients with better supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. One of the data points we considered on top of this nursing home's quality nursing hours is vaccines. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its residents. Vaccines are a great way to avoid unnecessary deaths and hospitalizations for the elderly. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
