Historical

To pair with its favorable overall grade, we awarded this place a grade of A- for the area of inspections. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection scores. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively minor. This place received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe. This indicates that the inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to create an imminent threat to resident health or safety. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.

Historical

One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. This proved to be its second best category grade. In that category, we gave this facility an B+. We scrutinized the levels of nurses at the facility, as well as the quantity of time those nurses were with residents, in computing our rating in this area. This facility provided 3.7 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 place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Historical

This facility also was awarded an impressive short-term care grade. In fact, we gave it an above average score of B in this category. With our short-term care score, we endeavor to create a sound barometer for rehabilitation services. In this process, we assess a facility's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. When we assessed this facility's nursing hours, we found it offered more care from registered nurses than most nursing homes. The last item we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. This place performed better than most nursing homes in this area with 52 percent of its patients returning home.

Historical

The last area we analyzed was long-term care, which turned out to be this nursing home's least impressive category. We gave this facility a grade of D in this area. Sadly, this score hurt the facility's overall profile to a certain degree. If you are seeking anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care grades. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Thankfully, this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents, which is a very solid datapoint. Lastly, we looked at the nursing home's number of hospitalizations. With 1.97 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility didn't fare quite as well.
