Historical

In addition to performing well in its overall grade, this nursing home earned even higher grades in the area of long-term care. It earned one of our highest grades in that area with an A. If you are seeking services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care scores. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 79.646 percent of its patients. This is somewhat below what we anticipated. Lastly, we looked at its number of hospitalizations. We found that this facility had 4.4 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. While this wasn't as strong as most of its other scores in this category, this statistic may be skewed for some nursing homes based on some of the medical complexity of residents.

This facility also performed well in inspections, which is based on its inspection reports. In fact, we awarded it an A- for that category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively minor. 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 facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of B-. While this didn't quite match its scores in some of the categories discussed above, this is still a decent score. In determining our nursing scores, we weigh both staffing levels and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This particular nursing home provided 3.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in some quality-focused statistics. Specifically, we look at the percent of residents who sustained pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these statistics as reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

Historical

The next category we rated was short-term care. This nursing home received a C for the category. In the category of short-term care, we seek to assess indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of patients that eventually returned home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually well below average.
