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. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are quite minor. This nursing home was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe. This means that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to create an immediate risk to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Historical

Contributing to its strong profile, this facility also received a strong long-term care grade, with a score of A-. Nursing homes that receive this kind of score in this category tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure patients are well cared for. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia sadly is often a deadly condition for nursing home residents so we prefer when a facility doesn't leave its residents vulnerable. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Turning to the next area, this facility also received a grade of B+ for its short-term care rating. This is an above average score in this category. In the category of short-term care, we strive to assess indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We assess the facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. It doesn't look like this facility submitted information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Historical

The final category we scored was nursing, where this facility was awarded a grade of B. Believe it or not, this is this nursing home's worst category. A nursing home could be doing a lot worse when their poorest grade still outperforms most other facilities. Nursing grades are heavily correlated with nurse staffing levels. This nursing home averages 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 data points as reliable indicators of the caliber of nursing care offered, since better care tends to reduce these problems.
