Historical

On top of faring well overall, this nursing home received a nearly flawless inspection report. Therefore, it earned one of our best grades in that area with an A+. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with better scores in this area most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This place received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the government inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to be an immediate threat to resident health or safety. We should note that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.

Historical

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. Nursing grades are largely tied to a facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provided 3.6 hours of nursing care per patient per day. Roughly a quarter of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are among the most skilled levels of nurses. This is a high percentage of skilled nursing care. We weight these hours more in calculating our nursing scores. Finally, we also looked at certain nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these metrics as predictive indicators of the quality of nursing care being provided, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

The next area we looked at is short-term care. This nursing home was given a very favorable short-term care grade. We awarded them a dominant grade of A- in this area. In calculating these short-term care grades, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The purpose is to create a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different facilities. One reason for this place's favorable grade in this category is that it offers more care from registered nurses to its residents than the typical facility. The final item we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 43.4 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home rather than remaining at the nursing home permanently.

Historical

The final area we graded was long-term care. In that area, we awarded this facility a decent grade of C. This actually is this facility's least impressive area. Long-term care grades are used to measure a facility's performance as a traditional convalescent home, as opposed to focusing more on the skilled nursing services offered by a rehabilitation facility. After looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 97.02128 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is more than the average nursing home. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
