Historical

On top of being a quality nursing home overall, this facility really performed well in the area of long-term care, where it earned an A-. When facilities receive a grade in this range in long-term care it typically means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is significantly higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Historical

Contributing to its profile, this facility also received a grade of B+ for its short-term care rating. This is a well above average grade in this area. Our short-term care grade is commonly employed to score a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. To provide highly rated rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to offer higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. Unfortunately, we weren't able to track down registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. The final metric we considered in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Historical

Turning to another of this nursing home's strengths, it also received a very impressive inspection score. In that area, we gave this nursing home a grade of B+. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this area most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Historical

The final category we analyzed is nursing, where this nursing home was given a grade of B-. This proved to be this facility's worst category. This is nevertheless a middle of the pack score. In determining our nursing grades, we look at both nursing hours and the levels of licensure of those nurses. This nursing home averages just 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Finally, our nursing scores also consider some quality-focused metrics. We look at the percentage of residents who sustained pressure ulcers and major falls. Sometimes these data points are indicators of the quality of nursing care, since superior care can reduce these problems.
