Historical

On top of receiving a great overall grade, this facility also received an A+ in short-term care. In our short-term care grade, we attempt to create a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation services. In this process, we look at a nursing home's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Remarkably, this nursing home provides about 50% more services from physical therapists and registered nurses than most nursing homes we looked at. This is a very favorable sign. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who ultimately were able to return home from this facility. In addition to excelling in the area of physical therapy hours, we found that it fared as well as just about any nursing home in the nation in this area with 73.7 percent of its patients returning home.

Historical

This nursing home also earned an A+ inspection grade, making it one of the few facilities to receive multiple A+'s in our categories. This grade is based on the nursing home's government inspections. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively insignificant. 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 also was superb in the area of long-term care, where it received a grade of A. Very few facilities received a better grade in this area. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. One of the criteria we considered on top of nursing hours is vaccines. It does not look like this nursing home provided vaccination data. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Historical

In the final category we assessed, this nursing home was awarded a very strong grade of A in our nursing category. With this score, the nursing home completed a straight A profile. Our nursing score analyzes the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We weigh both the levels of skill of the nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with residents. This facility provided 5.5 hours of nursing care per resident each day, which is among the higher figures in the country. A significant portion of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are one of the more skilled levels of nurses. We are really impressed by both of these figures. On top of offering high levels of nursing care, this facility also excelled in the quality-based metrics we assessed. It performed as well as any nursing home in the state when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
