Historical

To pair with a strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for inspections. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively insignificant. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Historical

We also wanted to point out the fact that this nursing home was superb in our long-term care rating. We awarded them a dominant score of A+ in this category. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in long-term care it typically means it has plenty of staff and is a quality place to reside on a permanent basis. One of the statistics we considered after nursing hours was vaccinations. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its patients. Vaccination is a great way to avoid unnecessary deaths and hospitalizations for the aged 65 and up population. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1.06 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home.

Historical

To complement its strong performance in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. The nursing score includes quite a few factors, but the most important consideration is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility 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 facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Historical

The last area we analyzed is short-term care. In this category, we awarded this facility a favorable grade of B. Short-term care ratings are based on a nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a wide range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. It does not look like this facility provided information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
