Historical

The main reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it received an excellent inspection grade. In fact, its inspection score was far superior to its overall grade. In the inspections category, we gave this facility an A. Inspection ratings 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. Facilities with better scores in this area usually have very few of these severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

This nursing home also performed favorably in the category of long-term care, with top-shelf grade of A- in this area. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. It goes without saying that we were happy with what we found here in this area.

The third category we looked at is short-term care. In that area, we gave this facility a solid grade of C. Our short-term care grades are vital for individuals needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires more skilled nursing services. This means a wide spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. We were pleased to find that this nursing home employs both registered nurses and physical therapists. The same can't be said for all nursing homes. The final item we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. It was above average in this metric with 54.3 percent of its residents returning home.

The next area we assessed is nursing. We gave this facility a D in the area of nursing, making this the facility's least impressive category grade. Our nursing rating focuses on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We weigh both the levels of skill of the nurses and the number of hours spent with patients. We do not think quantity of care was the reason for this nursing home's poor nursing grade. With 4 hours of nursing care per patient daily, this nursing home actually surpassed the national average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
