Historical

In addition to receiving an elite overall rating, this facility earned an A+ inspection rating. This is based on the facility's recent inspection reports. An A+ in this area is one of the highest complements we can offer a nursing home. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection ratings. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively insignificant. While this facility had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Historical

In addition, this nursing home was given dominant marks in the area of short-term care. For this reason, it was given one of our most impressive scores in that category with a grade of A+. Our short-term care grade is typically used to judge a facility's performance with rehabilitation. To offer highly scored rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to feature better levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. Remarkably, this nursing home provides about 50% more services from physical therapists and registered nurses than most nursing homes we looked at. This is a very favorable sign. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents that ultimately were able to return home from this facility. In addition to excelling in the area of physical therapy staffing, we found that it performed as well as just about any facility in the nation with 67.6 percent of its patients returning home. Most facilities are below 50 percent in this metric.

Historical

This nursing home also received a strong long-term care grade. In fact, we gave it an above average grade of B+ in this category. If you are seeking anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care scores. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. We weren't able to locate this place's vaccination data. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Historical

In our last category, this nursing home also was awarded a first-rate nursing score, with a B+. This completed a very impressive report card. Nursing ratings are based largely on nurse staffing levels. This facility provided 3.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. About a quarter of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are among the most skilled nurses. This is a high ratio of skilled nursing care. We weight these hours performed by skilled nurses more in determining our nursing grades. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
