Historical

In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this nursing home received an A+ for nursing. Our nursing score is largely associated with a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This place provides an incredible 4.2 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. Very few nursing homes provide this quantity of nursing care to their patients. Out of that total, many of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which is one of the most highly trained levels of nurses. In addition to providing impressive levels of nursing care, this facility also excelled in the quality measures we looked at. It performed as well as any nursing home in the nation in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

This facility also earned an A+ inspection score, making it one of the few nursing homes to receive multiple A+'s in our categories. This score is based on the place's recent inspections. An A+ in this area is one of the biggest complements we can pay to a nursing home. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with better grades in this category typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

We also awarded this facility a of A+ for its long-term care grade. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in long-term care it typically means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. On top of providing very favorable levels of nursing care and other staffing, this facility gave the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. This figure is also far higher than the average nursing home. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.67 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
