Historical

One of the reasons this turned out to be a decent nursing home is it earned a very favorable nursing rating. Its nursing grade is its best category. In this area, we gave this facility a B. The nursing grade consists of many factors, but the primary one is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at certain nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these metrics as predictive measures of the caliber of nursing care being provided, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

Historical

This facility's short-term care grade appears to be one of its best grades. The facility received a grade of B- in this category. In crafting our short-term care scores, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The objective is to create a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The final statistic we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 40.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. This figure was below the national average.

Historical

This facility received a solid inspection report this year as well, with few dings from the applicable government inspectors. As a result, it received one of our better grades in that category with a score of B-. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.

Historical

The next area we graded is long-term care, turned out to be this facility's least impressive area. We gave this facility a D in that category. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 99.11504 percent of its patients. Unfortunately, its hospitalization rate was far less favorable. Here we found that this nursing home had 2.56 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a concerning rate.
