Historical

To pair with a favorable overall grade, we gave this place an A+ for inspections. Arguably the most important factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this category typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This place was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that CMS did not deem any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Contributing to its high-end resume, this nursing home also performed well in our long-term care area. In fact, we gave it a grade of A- for the category. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in long-term care typically provide consistent around the clock care to ensure patients are well cared for. After assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients out of the hospital. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Historical

Among its many impressive grades, this facility received an excellent nursing grade. In fact, we gave it a grade of A- in that category. In determining a nursing home's nursing rating, we weigh the quantity of hours nurses are with residents as well as the level of licensure of the nurses. This particular nursing home provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed certain nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these statistics as reliable indicators of the caliber of nursing care being provided, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

Historical

The next area we scored was short-term care. In this area, we gave this facility a decent grade of B-. This turned out to be this facility's worst category. With our short-term care rating, we strive to create a valuable measure for rehabilitation. In this process, we analyze a nursing home's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Unfortunately, it does not look like this facility provided registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. The final statistic we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients that were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 38.4 percent of this facility's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.
