Historical

This facility received a quality overall grade as described above, but we especially would like to emphasize its nearly flawless government inspections in recent years. We gave them an A+ in this category. Inspection ratings weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this category typically have few severe deficiencies. This nursing home was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered severe. This indicates that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies an imminent risk to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

This facility is also above average in the category of long-term care, where it was given a score of B. It outperformed most nursing homes in this area. Facilities that do well in this category tend to be well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to residents. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients out of the hospital. This facility was also able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Although it had 1.81 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted statistic was better than the majority of nursing homes due to it having some more complex patients.

Historical

The next area we assessed is short-term care. We gave it a C in this area. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this area. Short-term care ratings are based on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a broad spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. It does not look like this nursing home submitted information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who returned home from this nursing home. We found that 22.6 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below the national average.
