Historical

The main reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it received an excellent inspection score. Its inspection grade was far better than its overall grade. In the inspections category, we gave this facility a grade of A-. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. While this place had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This tells you that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.

This facilities second best category is long-term care. We awarded it a grade of B- in this category. This is basically a slightly below average grade in this category. For prospective patients looking for a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. One of the statistics we considered after nursing hours is vaccinations. Thankfully, this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its patients. This place also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Historical

The next highest grade we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of C. The nursing category consists of several factors, many of which are based on nursing hours. This facility provides only 2.6 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a somewhat uninspiring figure as it is well below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures. Although this place got docked a bit for nursing hours, it excelled in some of these quality measures. With fewer than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it fared well in this statistic. This can be a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of turning residents more often.

Historical

The last area we scored is short-term care, which proved to be this facility's worst area. We awarded this nursing home a D in that area. In determining our short-term care ratings, we size up the facility's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. This category is generally a meaningful measure of a facility's rehabilitation. With its score in this area, we weren't stunned to learn that this facility was well below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the data we looked at. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients who who were able to eventually return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
