Historical

On top of being a strong nursing home overall, this nursing home also excelled in our inspections category, where it received an A+. Not many facilities fared better in that area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively insignificant. 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.

Historical

Adding to this nursing home's list of accomplishments, it also was awarded a fine long-term care score. We awarded them a strong strong of A in this area. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in this category it generally means it has plenty of staff and is a quality place to live on a permanent basis. After we finished looking at the quantity of nursing care, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 98.333336 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia tragically can be a life or death condition for nursing home patients so we prefer when a facility doesn't leave this to chance. The last statistic we assessed is its hospitalization rate. Here we found that this place had 2.77 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. While this wasn't as strong as some of its other scores in this area, this figure may be skewed for some facilities due to some of the preexisting medical conditions of residents.

Historical

The next highest grade we gave this nursing home came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of C. This wasn't quite as good as some of its other scores, but a grade in this range is not the end of the world. Our nursing rating is based on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We factor in both the levels of training of those nurses and the amount of time spent with patients. Based on the CMS data, this nursing home offers 3.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also factored a few quality measures into our nursing grades. This nursing home was relatively weak in some of the major datapoints we look at, with subpar scores for minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. These areas are generally reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care offered.

Historical

The next category we analyzed is short-term care, is this nursing home's weakest area. We awarded this nursing home a grade of D in that area. This really is one of just a few weak points of a strong profile. Short-term care grades are important for residents seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires additional highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a broad scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. We found that this place was subpar in several staffing areas we looked at. In fact, it offered fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. This was not a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 34.1 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. At most facilities, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
