Historical

We want to draw your attention to the fact that this facility really outperformed its overall grade in the category of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless government inspection report this year. As a result, we gave it one of our best scores in this area with an A+. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection ratings. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite insignificant. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This means that CMS did not deem 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 facility also excelled in the area of long-term care. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which happens to be one of our highest scores. Nursing homes that receive this kind of score in long-term care typically provide consistent around the clock care to make sure residents are kept in good health. One of the statistics we considered after nursing hours was vaccinations. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 97.28814 percent of its residents. Vaccination is a reliable method to minimize unnecessary deaths for the elderly population. Lastly, we looked at the facility's number of hospitalizations. We found that this nursing home had 2.78 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. While this admittedly wasn't as strong as some of its other scores in this category, this number can be skewed for some facilities based on some of the preexisting medical conditions of patients.

Historical

This facility's next highest category ended up being short-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of C. Short-term care ratings are based on the nursing home's quantity of skilled nursing services. This includes a wide scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. This nursing home is respectable both in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 39.4 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this is below average.

Historical

This facility's worst category was nursing, which is the last category we assessed. In this area, we awarded this facility a grade of D. There are quite a few criteria included in this area. Many of these criteria reflect staffing levels. This nursing home provides 3.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day, which is slightly below the national average. In addition to receiving below average scores for total nursing hours, this nursing home was a bit less impressive in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at in calculating our nursing scores. We looked at the percentage of residents sustaining pressure ulcers and found this facility was at roughly 1.5 times the national average in this metric.
