Historical

In addition to receiving a strong overall grade, this facility also received top notch inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our better grades in that area, with an A+. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively minor. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.

Another strong feature for this facility is that it was given a favorable long-term care score. Indeed, this ended up being its second best category score. In this area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B+. Nursing homes that excel in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to residents. One of the factors we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to 94.84536 percent of its residents. This is a reliable method to minimize unnecessary deaths for the senior population. Finally, we looked at the facility's number of hospitalizations. With 1.89 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this place was close to average in this area.

This facility received its third best category grade in the area of short-term care. We awarded this facility a grade of B- in this category, which is a decent score. In our short-term care category, we endeavor to craft a valuable measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we analyze the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. We were pleased to find that this nursing home employs both registered nurses and physical therapists. The same can't be said for all nursing homes. The final item we looked at in this area is the number of residents who were able to return home from the nursing home. This nursing home performed better in this statistic. It performed better than most facilities in this metric with 54.9 percent of its residents returning home.

The next category we looked at was nursing. We awarded this nursing home a D for nursing, making this the nursing home's weakest category. There are a variety of data points within this area. Many of these subcategories reflect nurse staffing. In this nursing home's case, quantity of care does not appear to be the problem. According to its CMS data, this nursing home provided an average of 3.9 hours of nursing care per patient per day, which was above the national average. Lastly, our nursing ratings also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed better than average in this area. This is often a good indicator of how carefully a facility's nursing staff is tending to its residents. Major falls can many times be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
