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

One of this nursing home's higher category grades came in the category of short-term care. This proved to be its second best category. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B-. In our short-term care score, we endeavor to create a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we analyze a facility's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. One reason for this nursing home's strong score in this category is that it provides a substantially greater volume of physical therapist hours than the typical nursing home. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who returned home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually below the national average.

Historical

The next highest grade we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of C. There are many criteria included in this category. Most of these datapoints reflect staffing levels. This nursing home offers extremely high levels of nursing care, averaging 4.4 hours per resident per day. This is well above average. Lastly, we also factored some quality-based metrics into our nursing grades. Specifically, we looked at the percent of residents who sustained pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these datapoints as good measures of the quality of nursing care, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

Historical

Our next category is long-term care, where we gave this nursing home a C in that category. In a long-term care setting, the nursing home's primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. After looking at the above average volume of nursing hours provided by this nursing home, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 96.969696 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is higher than the average nursing home. This combination proved to be effective as this place was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
