Historical

On top of being a great nursing home overall, it also received A+ government inspections in recent years. Its inspections are virtually perfect. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite minor. This particular nursing home received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Historical

Compounding its elite assessments in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for its short-term care score. Our short-term care grades are likely most meaningful for individuals in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates more highly-skilled nursing services. This includes not merely nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this facility provided information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. Finally, we considered the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. This facility performed better in this area than in its staffing levels. We found that it performed as well as just about any nursing home in this area with 66 percent of its residents returning home. Most facilities are below 50 percent in this metric.

Historical

This facility also was given a high-end long-term care grade. This actually turned out to be this facility's third strongest category grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A-. If you are looking for services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care scores. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 83.01887 percent of its residents. This is somewhat below what we were hoping for but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. Lastly, we looked at the facility's number of hospitalizations. Here we found that this nursing home had 2.64 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days.

Historical

The next area we analyzed was nursing. We gave this nursing home one of our higher grades in that category, with a grade of B. Although this isn't as high as some of its other scores, it is nevertheless an excellent grade. Nursing ratings are heavily correlated with levels of nurse staffing. This facility provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at certain nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these areas as predictive measures of the caliber of nursing care provided, since better care tends to reduce these problems.
