Historical

On top of receiving a strong overall score, this nursing home also received top notch health inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our higher scores in that area, with an A-. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this area typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this facility had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This means that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.

Historical

Adding to its impressive profile, this place also excelled in the category of nursing. In fact, we gave it a grade of B+ for that category. Our nursing grade is mostly based on the facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 3.1 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Historical

This nursing home's third most favorable category was long-term care. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-. Our long-term care grades are more important for those requiring more traditional assistance associated with activities of daily living. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is better than the vast majority of nursing homes. This facility was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.54 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Historical

The next area we rated is short-term care. We gave this facility a grade of B- in that area. Short-term care ratings are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a vast scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last measure we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.
