This particular nursing home provided 3.9 hours of nursing care per resident per day, which was above the national average. Lastly, this place also excelled in the quality-based metrics we assessed. For example, it performed as well as any facility the country in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Adding to its impressive category grades, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for our inspections rating. Inspection ratings account for several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher scores in this area typically have few severe deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies to cause an imminent risk to resident health or safety. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

Historical

Turning to the third area, this nursing home also received a grade of B+ for its long-term care rating. This is an above average score in this category. When facilities receive a grade in this range in this category it generally means it has plenty of staff and is a quality place to reside on a permanent basis. One of the statistics we considered after nursing hours is vaccinations. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 97.1831 percent of its patients. This is a proven method to minimize unnecessary deaths and hospitalizations for the elderly population. Finally, we looked at the facility's number of hospitalizations. We found that this facility had 2.21 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days.

Historical

The last area we scored is short-term care. In that area, we gave this nursing home a solid grade of B-. This actually turned out to be this nursing home's weakest category. In calculating our short-term care grades, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The goal is to devise a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of various facilities. This nursing home employs both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities employ these skilled professionals. The final measure we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 41.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.
