Historical

In addition to receiving a great overall score, this facility fared even better in the area of inspections which is based on the facility's recent inspections. We gave it a grade of A for this category, which is one of our best scores. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively minor. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

This facility performed well in the category of long-term care. In fact, we gave it a grade of A- for that area, which is one of our most elite scores. When nursing homes receive this kind of score in this category it is usually a good sign for resident care and suggests that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses aids. In addition to offering well above average levels of nursing care and other staffing, this facility gave the pneumonia vaccine to 99.05064 percent of its residents. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients healthy. Lastly, we looked at its number of hospitalizations. With 1.85 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility is close to average in this area.

Historical

This facility performed well in the area of short-term care also. Indeed, we gave it a grade of A- for that category, which turns out to be one of our most dominant grades. Short-term care grades are commonly used to assess a nursing home's rehabilitation services In order to provide highly scored rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to feature higher levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. One reason for this nursing home's strong score in short-term care is that it offers a substantially larger volume of physical therapist hours to its patients than the average nursing home. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that it outperformed the vast majority of facilities in the nation with 60.4 percent of its residents returning home. This is a significantly higher rate than most nursing homes.

Historical

The next area we assessed is nursing, which ended up being a weak link for this nursing home. We awarded this facility a D in nursing, rendering this the facility's worst grade. We'd still recommend that you consider all of a facility's category grades. There are a variety of factors within this category. Many of the data points are tied to the quantity of nurse staffing. Quantity of nursing care does not appear to be the problem here. Based on the data, it looks like this nursing home provides an above average 4.1 hours per resident on a daily basis. This is more nursing care than most nursing homes offer. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed better than average in this area. This is often a good indicator of how carefully a nursing home's nursing staff is tending to its residents. Major falls can generally be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
