This place really excelled in long-term care. We gave it a grade of A- for that area. This saved its overall profile.

This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 93.396225 percent of its patients. This place also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had just 1.55 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days.

This facility actually received a solid inspection report this year as well, with few major dings from the applicable government inspectors. As a result, it received one of our better grades in that category with a B-. We were surprised this nursing home received multiple category grades of this caliber. Inspection grades weigh a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

Historical

This facilities next best area was short-term care. We gave it a C in this category. This is basically a middle of the pack grade in this area. Short-term care grades are often used to assess a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation In order to have high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must have better levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. One reason for this facility's strong score in this category is that it provides a greater volume of physical therapist hours to its residents than the average nursing home. The last datapoint we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 44.9 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.

Historical

The next category we graded was nursing, ended up being this nursing home's least impressive area. We awarded this nursing home a grade of D in that category. In computing our nursing scores, we factor in both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the skill levels of the nurses. In this nursing home's case, quantity of care does not appear to be the problem. According to its CMS data, this place provided an average of 4.7 hours of nursing care per patient each day, which was above the national average. Despite performing well in terms of nursing hours, this nursing home was a bit less impressive in some of the quality-based measures we looked at in determining our nursing ratings. We looked at the percent of residents sustaining pressure ulcers and found that this facility was at roughly 150 percent of the national average in this statistic. This is likely a bad sign when you consider that many bed sores are believed to be preventable with better nursing care. Unfortunately, this statistic pulled down this nursing home's nursing grade substantially.
