To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. Inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report, which is still very impressive. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Historical

Among this nursing home's other achievements is its elite long-term care grade. We gave them one of our more favorable scores in that category, with a score of A-. Nursing homes that receive this kind of score in long-term care tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure residents are well cared for. One of the statistics we considered after nursing hours was vaccinations. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its residents. This is a great way to minimize unnecessary deaths for the aged 65 and up population. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1.35 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than the average nursing home.

Historical

This facility received its third best category grade in the category of short-term care. We awarded this nursing home a grade of B- in this area, which is a respectable score. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to qualify measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients that were able to return home from this nursing home and found that this facility performed better here. In fact, this facility performed better than most facilities in the nation in this area with 53.7 percent of its patients returning home.

Historical

The final category we scored is nursing. In this category, we gave this nursing home a C. Our nursing rating weighs several data points, but the most important consideration is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home averages just 2.7 hours of nursing care per resident daily, which is a very low figure. Finally, our nursing ratings also factor in some quality-focused statistics. We especially like to look at the percent of residents who experienced pressure ulcers and major falls. Sometimes these statistics are indicators of the quality of nursing care, since superior care can reduce these issues.
