Historical

To pair with its favorable overall score, we gave this place a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Historical

This facility was given a strong long-term care score as well. We gave it one of our better grades in that area with a grade of B+. When nursing homes receive this kind of score in long-term care it is usually a good sign for resident care and suggests that the place is well-staffed with nurses and aids. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 97.244095 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is significantly higher than most nursing homes. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Historical

Turning to an additional strength for this nursing home, we gave them one of our higher grades in our short-term care category as well, with a B+. Our short-term care grades are believed to be more critical for folks in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes more skilled nursing services. This means not merely nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, this nursing home offers both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities offer both. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. This proved to be a real strength for this facility. It outperformed the vast majority of facilities in the country with 74.8 percent of its patients returning home. This is a significantly higher rate than most nursing homes.

Historical

The last area we assessed is nursing, proved to be this nursing home's worst area. We gave this nursing home a grade of D in that area. This was one of the couple of weak points of an otherwise strong profile. Nursing scores are based in large part on nurse staffing levels. This nursing home averaged a meager 3.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Although this place did not excel in nursing hours, it surprised us in some of the quality-based metrics in the nursing category, such as avoiding serious falls. This facility was above average in this datapoint, which was one redeeming quality we found in this category.
