It should also be noted that this facility's nursing score outpaced its overall score. In fact, we awarded it a B+ for its nursing score. The nursing grade assesses a handful of datapoints, however, the main consideration is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This particular nursing home provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, 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 metrics as reliable measures of the quality of nursing care offered, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

Historical

This nursing home also earned a strong inspection grade. Inspection grades are based on the nursing home's recent government inspections. We gave this facility a B in this area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection scores. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being quite minor. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Historical

The last category we looked at is long-term care, which proved to be this facility's worst area. We gave this nursing home a D in this category. Facilities that receive this type of grade in this category likely don't provide the type of consistent around the clock care that some other nursing homes offer. After assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. We were concerned by the fact that this facility vaccinated a relatively low 88.81579 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
