Historical

In addition to being a quality nursing home overall, this facility really excelled in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of A. We scrutinized the levels of nurses employed by the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of time the nurses spent with residents, in calculating our score in this category. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

This facility also excelled in inspections. We gave it an A- for that area, which is one of our best grades. This is one of the few facilities with an overall score in this range which earned multiple category grades this high. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively insignificant. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. We should point out that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.

Historical

This facility is also strong in the area of long-term care, where it received a grade of B. It performed more favorably than most nursing homes in this area. For prospective patients looking for a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 87.80488 percent of its patients. This is slightly below what we anticipated but still a reasonably acceptable figure. Fortunately, this place keeps its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 1.25 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a significantly better hospitalization rate than the average nursing home.

Historical

Switching gears to our next category, this facility was awarded a grade of C for short-term care, which is a respectable score. In computing our short-term care ratings, we analyze a facility's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other types of therapists. This rating is generally a fair measure of a facility's rehabilitation services. We were not able to track down information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from this facility. We found that 17.7 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below the national average.
