Historical

To pair with its favorable overall score, we gave this nursing home an A for our inspections rating. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this area most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this place had a few deficiencies on its report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. A few relatively minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Among this facility's other strengths is its elite nursing grade. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of A-. Our nursing grade is primarily tied to the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 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 often be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Historical

The third category we graded is short-term care. This nursing home was awarded a very positive short-term care score, with a B+ in the area. With our short-term care category, we seek to craft a sound gauge for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we analyze the nursing home's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. It doesn't look like this nursing home submitted information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. The last statistic we looked at in this area is the number of residents that ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Historical

The last area we scored is long-term care, which was this nursing home's weakest category. Sadly, it received an abysmal F for this area, which is obviously somewhat disappointing. If you are looking for anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care ratings. One of the data points we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccines. Thankfully, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this place also keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.68 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
