Historical

In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this nursing home received an A+ in the area of long-term care. Nursing homes that do well in long-term care typically provide residents with closer supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. On top of assessing the impressive volume of care provided by aids and other staff at this nursing home, we also were impressed by the facility's record for vaccinations. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is an impressive figure. The last datapoint we looked at was the facility's hospitalization rate. Here we found that this place had 2.86 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Although this wasn't as strong as some of its other scores in this category, this number may be skewed for some facilities based on some of the preexisting medical conditions of residents.

Historical

This facility also received an A+ inspection grade, making it one of the rare places to receive multiple A+'s in our categories. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite minor. While this place had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Historical

Another reason we rated this nursing home so highly is that it received an A+ nursing grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this category. There are numerous factors within this category. Many of the factors relate to staffing levels. This nursing home boasts a really impressive 4.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day, of which a significant portion was provided by registered nurses. This is one of the most highly highly trained levels of nurses. In addition to providing impressive levels of care, this facility also excelled in the quality-based metrics we looked at. It performed as well as any facility in the country in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Historical

The last area we rated ended up being this facility's poorest category. Nevertheless, even its lowest point would be a strength for most nursing homes. In fact, we gave it a strong grade of B for our short-term care category. Short-term care scores are crucial for individuals needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates higher levels of skilled nursing services. This includes a vast range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. One of this facility's strengths is it provides more than an hour of care per day from registered nurses per resident. This is the gold standard for this metric, as it's about 50% higher than the average facility's level of registered nurse staffing. The final metric we assessed in this category is the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that 43 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home rather than remaining at the facility permanently.
