Historical

In addition to being a respectable facility overall, this facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned an A+. Few facilities performed better in this area. Inspection ratings account for several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this category usually have very few severe deficiencies. This nursing home was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies an immediate threat to resident health or safety. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in the industry.

This nursing home also was awarded an impressive long-term care score. As a matter of fact, we gave them a B in this category, which is one of our more favorable scores. Nursing homes that excel in long-term care typically are well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to residents. One of the datapoints we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccines. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 94.389435 percent of its patients. This is a proven method to minimize negative health outcomes for the nursing home population. Finally, we looked at the nursing home's number of hospitalizations. While it had 2.68 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted metric was middle of the road due to it having more complex patients.

The third highest area we awarded this facility in any area came in the area of short-term care, where we awarded it a grade of B-. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we analyze a nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. This rating is typically a solid measure of the facility's rehabilitation. Fortunately, this nursing home offers both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities offer both. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. This proved to be more of a strength for this facility. In fact, we found that it outperformed the majority of nursing homes in the nation with 54.2 percent of its residents returning home. This is a higher rate than most facilities.

Historical

Turning to the next category, we awarded this nursing home a D for nursing. This is the facility's worst category score. Unfortunately, this score hurt the nursing home's overall grade a bit. In calculating our nursing grades, we weigh both staffing levels and the levels of licensure of those nurses. This nursing home averages 3.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day, which is below the national average. To go along with its low totals in the area of nursing hours per resident, this nursing home also didn't fare as well in the quality-based measures we looked at in determining our nursing scores. We looked at the percentage of residents experiencing pressure ulcers and major falls. This nursing home had more pressure ulcers and falls than the average facility.
