Historical

In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this nursing home excelled in our nursing category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category. Our nursing rating analyzes the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We weigh both the levels of training of the nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with residents. This place offers 3.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day, of which more than one hour was provided by registered nurses. This is one of the most highly trained nurses. In computing our nursing grades, we attach more significance to hours performed by registered nurses. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics 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 facility the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as having a policy of turning a patient even once per day.

Historical

Facilities that receive this kind of grade in long-term care tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure patients are well cared for. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 92.11712 percent of its residents. This is a bit less than we expected but still a reasonably acceptable figure.

Historical

The fourth area we rated was short-term care, where this facility was awarded a grade of B+. This topped off an elite profile. Only a select few facilities received a B+ or higher in every single category. Our short-term care scores are critical for patients requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. This includes a vast spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. One of this nursing home's strengths is registered nurse hours. We found that it provides more care from registered nurses to its residents than most facilities. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who ultimately were able to return home from this facility. This place performed respectably in this metric with 47.2 percent of its residents returning home.
