These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports.

Historical

This nursing home also received a very strong long-term care grade. Indeed, this turned out to be this nursing home's second strongest category score. In that area, this facility received a score of A-. In a long-term care environment, the primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 80.645164 percent of its patients. This is somewhat below what we anticipated but still a reasonably acceptable figure. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, we were pleased to find facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1.08 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home.

Adding to its strong resume, this facility also received an excellent nursing score, with a grade of A-. There are several factors within this category. Most of the criteria are tied to the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 3.8 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Historical

The next area we graded is short-term care, where this nursing home received a C. This actually ended up being this facility's least impressive category. This is still nothing to be ashamed of. In forming these short-term care grades, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our goal is to create a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. One of this nursing home's strength is that it offers more hours of care from registered nurses to its residents. The last statistic we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients that returned home from the facility. We found that just 22.3 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. This figure is below the national average.
