Historical

This facility's nursing grade was better than its overall grade. With a strong performance in this category, it earned a quality score in nursing with a B+. When calculating our nursing grades, we weigh both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the skill levels of the nurses. This facility provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this nursing home 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 country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by having a policy of turning a patient at least once a day.

It should also be noted that this facility's inspection grade was strong as well. We awarded it a grade of B for inspections, which is one of our better scores. Inspection grades are tied to items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that receive favorable grades in this area typically have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Based on this, we had a generally positive view of this nursing home's recent inspections.

Historical

This facility's third best category ended up being its long-term care grade, where it was given a grade of C. In determining our long-term care grades, we look at the personal care offered to a nursing home's patients. One of the statistics we considered on top of nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. We were a bit worried that this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to a relatively low 48.837208 percent of its patients. The last datapoint we assessed is the facility's hospitalization rate. Although it had 2.43 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted metric was not as bad.

Historical

Turning to our fourth area, this facility received a C in short-term care, which is a decent grade. In computing our short-term care grades, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our goal is to create a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the average facility. The hope is always that this does not adversely impact the quality of care. The last metric we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 31.3 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.
