Historical

One of the reasons this place turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it earned an A+ inspection grade. This is as good as it gets in this critical category. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Among its many dominant scores, this nursing home was awarded a strong short-term care score. In fact, it received a score of A- in this area. Our short-term care ratings are believed to be more critical for those needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually mandates additional skilled nursing. This means not just nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. One of this nursing home's strength is that it offers more hours of care from registered nurses to its residents. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that it outperformed most facilities in the nation with 53.8 percent of its residents returning home.

Adding to its strong resume, this facility also received an excellent nursing score, with a grade of A-. When calculating our nursing grades, we factor in both nursing hours and the training levels of the nurses. This place provided 4.6 hours of nursing care per resident daily, which is among the highest figures in the country. A significant portion of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are one of the most skilled levels of nurses. We are really impressed by these statistics. In addition to providing high levels of care, this nursing home was also above average in several of the major quality-based metrics we assessed in this category. It performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

The fourth category we graded was long-term care, where this facility was given an A-. This rounded out a very strong profile. Few nursing homes earned an A- or better in every category. Facilities that do well in this category tend to provide patients with closer supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. In addition to elite nursing hour statistics, this facility's vaccination records is first-rate also. Indeed, this facility vaccinated 98.68996 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.75 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
