Historical

One of the reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it earned an impressive inspection rating. In fact, inspections is its best category. In that area, we gave it an A. Arguably the most important factor we look at in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This facility was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered severe. This means that the government inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to be an imminent risk to patient health or safety. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.

Historical

The next highest category we awarded this facility in any area came in the area of short-term care, where we gave it a B-. In the category of short-term care, we try to evaluate measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We analyze a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. We were not able to track down information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The last measure we looked at in this area is the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that just 34.4 percent of this facility's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.

Historical

Our last area is long-term care, in which we awarded this nursing home a B- in this area. Our long-term care grade is often used to gauge a facility's performance as a traditional nursing home, as opposed to focusing on the skilled nursing services offered by a skilled nursing facility. After considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 98.81657 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is better than most nursing homes. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 1.34 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes.
