Historical

This nursing home received a strong overall grade as described above, but we especially wanted to emphasize its excellent nursing score. We gave them a grade of A in this category. In calculating a facility's nursing grade, we look at the amount of time nurses are caring for residents as well as the level of licensure of the nurses. This particular nursing home provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Additionally, this facility also received favorable short-term care scores in our assessment. In fact, we gave it one of our more favorable scores in that category, with a grade of B+. In determining our short-term care grades, we look at a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This category is generally a fair assessment of a facility's rehabilitation services. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this facility provided data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return home from this facility. It performed respectably in this area with 46 percent of its residents returning home.

Historical

Furthermore, this nursing home also earned impressive inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our better scores in that area, with a B. Inspection ratings account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this category generally have few severe deficiencies. This place received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This indicates that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to create an imminent threat to resident safety or health. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

Historical

Turning to the final area, this facility was given a decent long-term care score of C. In computing our long-term care ratings, we scrutinize the personal care offered to a nursing home's residents. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents, which is higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Finally, we looked at the facility's number of hospitalizations. We found that this facility had 2.83 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Although this figure is somewhat concerning, this statistic may be skewed for some nursing homes due to the medical complexity of patients.
