Historical

Among the reasons we rated this nursing home so well is that it was given a dominant short-term care score. In fact, short-term care ended up being its second most favorable category score. In that category, we awarded this facility a score of A-. Our short-term care scores are based on the nursing home's quantity of skilled nursing services. This includes a broad spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. This place is the gold standard when it comes to skilled nursing staffing. In fact, it supplied about 50% more physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the typical facility. This is what we like to find when grading a nursing home in this category. The last measure we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who eventually returned home from the facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Adding to its profile, this facility also earned a grade of B for its nursing rating. This is a well above average score in this category. The nursing score assesses a handful of datapoints, but the most important one is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This place boasts a really impressive 4.7 hours of nursing care per patient each day, of which a significant portion was provided by registered nurses. This is one of the most highly highly trained levels of nurses. On top of providing high levels of nursing care, this facility also excelled in several of the quality measures we looked at. With under 5 percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it fared as well as any nursing home the state in this category.

Historical

This nursing home's weakest category was long-term care, which is the final area we scored. In this category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of just D. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. After looking at nursing hours provided by this nursing home, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. Due to its grade in this category, we were pleasantly surprised to discover that this facility received respectable marks in both of these statistics. Indeed, this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which appears to be higher than most nursing homes. Surprisingly, this nursing home also keeps its residents out of the hospital. It had just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
