Historical

On top of being a quality nursing home overall, this nursing home really excelled in the area of nursing, where it received an A. Few facilities performed better in this category. There are quite a few factors within this category. Many of these datapoints are tied to the quantity of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 3.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

In addition, this facility also performed well in our inspection category, which is based on its recent government inspections. We gave it an A- for that category, which is one of our highest grades. Our inspection ratings account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this area generally have very few severe deficiencies. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor dings are not the end of the world.

The next area we analyzed is long-term care. This facility received a very positive long-term care grade, with a B in the area. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 94.32773 percent of its patients, which is higher than the majority of nursing homes. This place was also able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Although it had 2.16 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, its risk adjusted statistic was better than the majority of nursing homes since it had some more complicated patients.

Historical

The last category we assessed is short-term care. This facility was given an impressive short-term care score in our assessment, with a grade of C. Although this is not as good as some of its other category grades, this is still a decent rating for that area. In crafting these short-term care grades, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The objective is to devise a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. This nursing home employs both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities employ these skilled professionals. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 42.9 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
