Historical

One of the many reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it received an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. Inspection grades are based on many datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that receive favorable grades in this area typically have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. 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.

This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades.

Historical

The last category we graded is this nursing home's worst category. Nevertheless, even in its weakest link we still awarded it a decent grade of C for short-term care. Short-term care grades are commonly used to judge a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to provide highly graded rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must offer higher levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. We were not able to locate information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The final datapoint we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that just 14.7 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.
