Historical

In addition to faring well overall, this nursing home also earned a nearly flawless inspection report. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that area with a grade of A+. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple relatively minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Historical

This facility received superb marks in the category of short-term care. For this reason, it was given one of our best grades in that category with a score of A+. Short-term care scores are vital for people needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a wide scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. This nursing home provides more services with physical therapists and registered nurses than most nursing homes we looked at. This is usually a favorable sign. Finally, we looked at the number of residents that ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. On top of excelling in the area of physical therapy, we found that it performed as well as just about any facility with 65.8 percent of its patients returning home.

Nurse Quality

Historical

Another one of this facility's impressive category grades came in the area of nursing care. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B+. There are several datapoints included in this category. Most of these criteria relate to levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 3.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically 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.

Long-term Care Quality

The final category we rated was nursing, turned out to be this nursing home's least impressive area. We gave this facility a grade of D in this category. This is one of just a few weak links of a strong report card. For prospective residents in need of a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are very important. On top of considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 99.50249 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.36 hospitalizations per 1,000 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.
