Historical

Among its many high-end grades, this nursing home was given a top-shelf short-term care score. In fact, it received a grade of A in this category. Our short-term care ratings are important for individuals needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a wide spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this nursing home submitted information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents that returned home from this facility. This facility performed better in this area than in its staffing levels. This place performed as well as just about any facility in the nation in this area with 59.9 percent of its residents returning home. Most facilities are below 50 percent in this metric.

Historical

This nursing home also was awarded a strong long-term care grade. Indeed, we awarded it an above average grade of B+ in this area. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 99.5984 percent of its residents, which is significantly higher than the majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 1.12 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home.

Historical

The final category we graded was nursing. We gave this nursing home a solid grade in that category, with a grade of B-. Even though this isn't as favorable as a few of this nursing home's other grades, it is still nothing to be ashamed of. The nursing rating considers many subcategories. The most important variable is the number of hours nurses spend with residents. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a much lower figure than we were hoping for. Lastly, our nursing ratings also factor in some quality-focused statistics. We like to look at the percent of patients who experienced pressure ulcers and major falls. Sometimes these metrics are indicators of the quality of nursing care, since superior care can reduce these issues.
