Historical

To pair with its decent overall grade, we gave this facility an A- for our inspections rating. This score is far better than the facility's overall rating. Inspection ratings weigh a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this area generally have very few severe deficiencies. Although this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none 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 that this nursing home received a strong long-term care score. In fact, we gave it one of our best grades in that area with a score of A-. When facilities receive a score in this range in long-term care it generally means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients out of the hospital. The last statistic we looked at is the nursing home's hospitalization rate. We found that this place had 1.93 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is middle of the road in this area.

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 B-. We analyzed the qualifications of nurses at the nursing home, as well as the quantity of time the nurses spent with patients, in computing our score in this area. This particular nursing home provided 3.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, our nursing rating also includes some relevant quality-based metrics. While this facility excelled in terms of quantity of nursing hours, it lagged a bit in some of the metrics that focused on quality. This facility's nursing score was pulled down by poor performance in the area of minimizing pressure ulcers. In fact, we found that 13.6 percent of this nursing home's patients were suffering from pressure ulcers. Since some pressure ulcers can be avoided with sufficient nursing protocols, we reduce a facility's nursing rating when we find this kind of prevalence of pressure ulcers.

Historical

The final area we scored was short-term care. This facility was awarded a C in this area. Short-term care scores are crucial for people needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates higher levels of skilled nursing. This includes a wide spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. We were pleased to find that this nursing home employs both registered nurses and physical therapists. The same can't be said for all nursing homes. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 31.9 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
