The primary reason this facility received a decent overall grade is its impeccable government inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our better grades in that category, with an A-. This is a notably better grade than the place's overall score, which was decent but certainly not elite. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with better scores in this area most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This nursing home was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe. This indicates that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's second best area was short-term care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of C. In determining these short-term care scores, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our purpose is to devise a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. 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 item we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.
This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of C. There are a host of criteria within this grade. Most of the factors reflect nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 3.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed admirably in this datapoint.
Long-term Care Quality
Our final category is long-term care, in which we gave this facility a C in this category. In calculating our long-term care grades, we assess the personal care offered to the facility's residents. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We weren't able to find information about this nursing home's vaccination rates. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
