Historical

One of the many reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received an A+ nursing grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this category. Our nursing score consists of a handful of components, however, the paramount one is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This particular facility provided 4.5 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This was one of the more impressive totals we found. Furthermore, we found that a significant percentage of this care was provided by registered nurses, which are highly skilled nurses. Both of these statistics are impressive. In addition to providing high levels of care, this place also excelled in the quality measures we assessed. For example, it performed as well as any facility in the country when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We view these statistics as reliable measures of the caliber of nursing care offered.

Historical

This exemplary nursing home also was superb in the area of short-term care, where we awarded it a grade of A+. Only a small group of nursing homes fared better in this category. In calculating these short-term care grades, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The objective is to formulate a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. This place offered more physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most facilities. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that it outperformed the vast majority of nursing homes in the country in this area with 70 percent of its residents returning home. This is a significantly higher rate than most nursing homes.

Historical

This facility also received a nearly flawless inspection report. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A+. Inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. 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

Moving on to our last category, this facility received an excellent long-term care score. We gave it an A- in that category, resulting in this facility receiving straight A's. Facilities that receive this type of score in long-term care typically provide consistent around the clock care to ensure residents are kept in good health. After we finished looking at the volume of nursing care, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 91.150444 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.6 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
