Historical

We want to draw your attention to the fact that this facility outperformed its overall score in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, we gave it one of our best scores in this category with an A+. Arguably the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this area typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This means CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

The second most favorable category we awarded this nursing home in any area came in the category of long-term care, where we gave it a B-. Our long-term care grade is used to score a facility's performance as a traditional nursing home, as opposed to focusing more on the skilled nursing services offered by a skilled nursing facility. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. We were optimistic to discover that this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 1.46 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home.

Moving on to another strength for this facility, it also received an elite nursing score. We gave this facility an impressive grade of D. Our nursing rating is largely associated with a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home offered a meager 2.9 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is well below average. Finally, we also looked at a few quality-based metrics in computing our nursing scores. This facility was above average in two of the areas we focus on, with good scores for avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Historical

The final category we rated is short-term care, which is this nursing home's weakest area. Unfortunately, we gave it an F in this area, which is certainly very concerning. In calculating these short-term care ratings, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The objective is to formulate a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different facilities. As you might expect, we found that this facility provides significantly less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the average facility. The last datapoint we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 39.3 percent of its residents returning home.
