To pair with a favorable overall grade, we awarded this facility an A+ for our inspections rating. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines.

We also gave this nursing home a score of A for our short-term care grade. In our short-term care category, we endeavor to forge a sound gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at a facility's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. One of this nursing home's strengths is physical therapy hours. We found that it offers more hours with physical therapists to its residents than most facilities. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that it outperformed the vast majority of facilities in the nation with 59.4 percent of its residents returning home.

Historical

This facility received a very good nursing grade this year as well. It received one of our better scores in that category with a grade of B. Our nursing rating is primarily associated with a facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided 3.9 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is an impressive figure which typically leads to higher quality care. Finally, this nursing home also performed well in several of the quality measures we looked at. By way of illustration, in terms of the percentage of its patients sustaining falls leading to major injury, this nursing home performed better than the national average. This is often a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Historical

The next category we looked at is long-term care, where this nursing home was given a grade of B-. Although this wound up being its weakest category grade, this is nevertheless not a bad grade. Our long-term care ratings are based in part on the facility's amount of nursing care. This includes a broad scope of personal care services, ranging from help with activities of daily living to routine healthcare services. On top of above average nursing hour statistics, this facility's vaccination statistics are fairly strong as well. In fact, it vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 1.15 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes.
