Historical

In addition to performing well in its overall grade, this facility performed at an even higher level in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A+. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this category most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this place had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This tells you the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Historical

This nursing home was given strong marks in the category of long-term care as well. As a result, it received one of our strongest grades in that category with a area of A-. Nursing homes that excel in long-term care tend to provide patients with more supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. After we finished assessing the volume of nursing care, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 99.50124 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia is often a life threatening illness for nursing home patients so we prefer when a nursing home doesn't leave its residents vulnerable. This nursing home also keeps its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 1.71 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days.

The same can't be said for all nursing homes. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents that ultimately were able to return home from this facility. It performed respectably in this metric with 48.4 percent of its residents returning home.

The final category we scored was nursing. We gave it a C in that area. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this area. Our nursing rating is largely tied to the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 3.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based measures, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed admirably in this area.
