Historical

One of the reasons this ended up being a quality facility is that it earned an impressive inspection rating. In fact, inspections turned out to be its best category. In this category, we awarded it an A. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively minor. While this place had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This means that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.

Historical

Adding to its strong performance in other categories, we gave this nursing home a grade of B+ for nursing. Our nursing rating is mostly tied to the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 3.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a protocol of turning a patient at least once a day.

Historical

Additionally, this facility also was awarded favorable long-term care scores this year. Indeed, we awarded them one of our stronger grades in that area, with a score of B. Facilities that receive this type of score in this category typically provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure residents are kept in good health. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 72.57143 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is a bit less than we expected but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1.63 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home.

Historical

The final area we looked at was short-term care. We gave it a B- in that category. This is a decent grade in this category. Our short-term care grades are probably more critical for those in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically utilizes more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. This nursing home is above the national average in terms of its volume of both physical therapy and registered nurse staffing provided to its patients. These are generally good indicators of quality short-term care. The last datapoint we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 41.5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.
