Historical

In addition to being a quality nursing home overall, this nursing home really excelled in the area of nursing, where it received an A. Few facilities performed better in this area. The nursing grade consists of quite a few factors, many of which are associated with quantities of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at 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 facility the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as having a protocol of turning a patient even once per day.

Historical

Adding to its strong resume, this facility earned a grade of B for its inspections rating. This is a well above average score in this category. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this area typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This particular nursing home received 4 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

This nursing home was awarded a strong short-term care score as well. We awarded it one of our higher scores in that category with a score of B. Our short-term care ratings are critical for individuals needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates more highly-skilled nursing. This means a broad spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we weren't able to locate information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 44.8 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Historical

Turning to the final category, this nursing home received a decent long-term care score of C. Our long-term care ratings are more meaningful for folks needing more conventional assistance related to activities of daily living. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. As it turns out, this nursing home gave the vaccine to only 68.29269 percent of its residents, which is somewhat concerning. Nevertheless, this nursing home was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had just 1.63 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days.
