Historical

On top of receiving a quality overall grade, this facility also received excellent government inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our highest scores in that area, with a grade of A. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite insignificant. This place received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that the inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to cause an imminent risk to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as having a system of turning a resident more frequently.

Historical

Compounding its strong resume, this facility also was awarded an excellent long-term care score, with a grade of A-. When nursing homes receive this type of score in long-term care it is usually a good sign for patient care and suggests that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses aids. After considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is significantly higher than most nursing homes. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.17 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Historical

In our final area, we gave this nursing home a grade of A for our short-term care rating. This rounded out a first-rate profile. In our short-term care category, we seek to craft a fair measure for rehabilitation services. In this process, we assess the facility's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Unfortunately, it does not look like this nursing home provided information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. The last statistic we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
