Historical

In addition to a phenomenal overall grade, this facility also received A+ nursing grade. The nursing grade assesses quite a few datapoints, many of which are based on quantities of nurse staffing. This place provided 4.7 hours of nursing care per patient daily, which is among the more impressive totals in the country. A significant percentage of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are one of the more skilled levels of nurses. We were really impressed by both of these figures. In addition to offering high levels of nursing care, this facility also excelled in the quality measures we looked at. It performed as well as any nursing home in the country in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

We also wanted to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home was superb in our short-term care rating. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. With our short-term care assessment, we seek to create a valuable gauge for rehabilitation services. In this process, we analyze a facility's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Remarkably, this nursing home provides about 50% more services from physical therapists and registered nurses than most nursing homes we looked at. This is a very favorable sign. The final item we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community. We found that this nursing home was above average in this area with 53.6 percent of its residents able to return home.

In addition, this nursing home also earned excellent inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our best grades in that category, with an A-. Inspection grades weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this area generally have few severe deficiencies. While this facility had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This tells you the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

Historical

The next category we rated is long-term care, which was a weak spot for this nursing home. We gave this nursing home a grade of D for the area of long-term care, making this the facility's least impressive category grade. We'd still suggest that you consider all of a nursing home's grades. If you are seeking services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care grades. On top of providing solid levels of nurse staffing, this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 97.26776 percent of its patients. These scores were notably more favorable than a few of its other statistics in the category. To our surprise, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.4 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
