Historical

To pair with its strong overall performance, we awarded this facility an A- for the area of inspections. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This means the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few relatively minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

An additional strong feature for this facility is that it was given an impressive long-term care grade. In fact, this proved to be its second best category score. In this category, we gave this nursing home a B. Long-term care scores in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. After looking at the very impressive nursing care provided by this facility, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 99.53271 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is much higher than most nursing homes. This combination proved to be effective as this facility was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had only 1.06 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a significantly lower hospitalization rate than the average nursing home.

Historical

This facility also was awarded an impressive short-term care grade. In fact, we gave it an above average grade of B in this category. Short-term care grades are based on the facility's quantity of skilled nursing services. This means a wide range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy. This place offered more physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most facilities. This is what we like to find when assessing a nursing home in this category. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the number of patients who eventually returned home from the facility. We found that 44.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Historical

The final category we looked at is nursing, in which this facility was given a grade of B. This nursing home turned out to be very solid in each category we looked at. In calculating a facility's nursing score, we weigh the quantity of hours nurses commit to patients and the skill levels of those nurses. With 4.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day, this nursing home surpassed the overwhelming majority of facilities. Finally, this facility also excelled in several quality measures we looked at. With less than five percent of its residents experiencing pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the country in this category. This is often a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Many pressure ulcers can be avoided by offering better nursing care and a protocol of turning patients more frequently.
