Historical

While this nursing home's overall grade was decent, it really excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A+ for that category, which is one of our best scores. Inspection ratings weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better scores in this category tend to have few of these severe deficiencies. This place received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered severe. This means that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to resident safety or health. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.

Historical

Another one of this nursing home's higher category grades came in the category of long-term care. In that area, we awarded this facility a B. Facilities that receive this kind of score in long-term care tend to provide consistent around the clock care to make sure patients are kept in good health. After we finished looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia is too frequently a deadly health condition for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a nursing home does not roll the dice on this issue. This nursing home was also able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 1.46 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days.

Historical

We also awarded this facility a middle of the road score in the area of short-term care, where we awarded it a grade of C. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to qualify indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. This nursing home employs both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities employ these skilled professionals. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents who eventually returned home from this nursing home. It performed respectably in this area with 45.5 percent of its patients returning home.

Our last category is nursing, in which we awarded this facility a grade of C in this area. When determining our nursing scores, we analyze both nursing hours and the skill levels of those nurses. This nursing home averages just 2.8 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Lastly, we like to look at quality-based statistics, such as the percentage of residents who experienced pressure ulcers and major falls. These data points are indicators of the quality of nursing care.
