Historical

In addition to receiving a strong overall score, this facility also earned first-rate health inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our better grades in this category, with an A-. Our inspection ratings account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this category usually have 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. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Historical

This facility received high grades in the area of nursing as well. In fact, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A-. Nursing ratings are primarily tied to the nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 3.8 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Historical

This nursing home was awarded a strong long-term care score as well. We awarded it one of our higher scores in that category with a score of B. Long-term care grades in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients healthy. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 1.69 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes.

Historical

Turning to our next area, this nursing home received a grade of C for short-term care, which is a respectable grade. Our short-term care scores are likely more meaningful for folks needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually requires more highly-skilled nursing. This means not only nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, this nursing home offers both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities offer both. The last statistic we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 43.9 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.
