Historical

We gave this facility one of our better scores in the area of nursing, with an A-. This is a notably better grade than the facility's overall score, which was decent but not in the elite range. In calculating a facility's nursing score, we weigh the quantity of hours nurses commit to residents and the level of licensure of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Additionally, we also would like to note that this facility received positive short-term care marks this year. We gave them one of our higher scores in this category, with a grade of B. This turned out to be the facility's second best score. Short-term care grades are commonly employed to assess a nursing home's rehabilitation services. In order to have high-end rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to provide better levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. We weren't able to track down information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The final measure we assessed in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. It was above average with 50.1 percent of its residents returning home.

This nursing home also received a very favorable inspection grade. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B. Our inspection scores are based on pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that excel in this area have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. We should point out that deficiency-free inspections are rare in the industry.

Historical

The final area we assessed was long-term care. This nursing home was awarded a C in this area. For patients looking for a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are an important measure. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home administered the vaccine to a relatively low 89.47369 percent of its residents. Finally, we looked at the nursing home's number of hospitalizations. This facility did not excel here either, with 7.41 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Although this figure is somewhat concerning, this number may be skewed for some nursing homes based on the medical complexity of residents.
