Historical

To pair with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for its nursing grade. Short-term care ratings are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a broad spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. This nursing home is substantially above the national average in terms of its quantity of both physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents. In fact, it provided about 50% more care per resident from both of these care providers than the average facility provided. These are generally good indicators of quality short-term care. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that it outperformed the vast majority of nursing homes in the nation with 66.2 percent of its residents returning home. This is a significantly higher rate than most facilities.

To complement its strong performance in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for our inspections rating. The nursing grade consists of quite a few subcategories, most of which are tied to quantities of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 3.7 hours of nursing care per resident each day. At least one fourth of this care was provided by registered nurses, which are highly skilled nurses. This is a high percentage of skilled nursing care. In determining our ratings, we apply additional weight to hours provided by registered or licensed nurses. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as having a protocol of turning a resident more frequently.

Another impressive feature of this facility is its inspection grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A-. Our inspection grades are tied to many datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that score well in this category have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This particular nursing home received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Historical

The last area we assessed was long-term care, where this facility received a C. While this ended up being its worst category grade, this is nevertheless a middle of the pack score. Our long-term care grades are critical for residents needing non-healthcare services such as personal care. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 91.47727 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is a few points less than we were hoping for but still a decent figure. The last statistic we assessed was its hospitalization rate. While it had 2.43 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, its risk adjusted metric was not as bad.
