Historical

The main reason this turned out to be a decent nursing home is that it received an elite inspection score. Its inspection score was far better than its overall grade. In our inspections category, we gave this facility an A. Inspection scores account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category usually have few severe deficiencies. This nursing home received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to patient health or safety. We should note that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.

We also wanted to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home was awarded a strong long-term care score. In fact, we awarded it one of our best grades in that area with a score of A-. Nursing homes that do well in this category tend to provide residents with closer supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 97.605896 percent of its residents. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents out of the hospital. This nursing home also keeps its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 1.59 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days.

Historical

Moving on to another strength for this facility, it also earned an elite nursing score. We gave this nursing home an D. In determining our nursing grades, we weigh both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This facility averaged a meager 3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing grades. This place performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Historical

The last area we analyzed is short-term care. We awarded this facility a D in short-term care, making this its worst category grade. Our short-term care grades are considered to be most critical for patients requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally mandates higher levels of skilled nursing services. This includes not just nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The last datapoint we looked at in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. This statistic was damning for this facility's short-term care grade.
