To go along with its favorable overall grade, we awarded this facility a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. Our inspection scores weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher grades in this category generally have few of these severe deficiencies. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

This nursing home also was awarded a top-shelf long-term care grade. This actually is this nursing home's second strongest category score. In that area, this facility received a score of A-. In a long-term care environment, the primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 50.610584 percent of its residents, which is somewhat lower than we expected. The last datapoint we looked at was the facility's hospitalization rate. Here we found that this facility had 1.82 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is close to average in this area.

Historical

Another one of this facility's impressive category grades came in the area of nursing care. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B+. Our nursing grade analyzes the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We consider both the levels of skill of the nurses and the number of hours spent with residents. This nursing home provides 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 areas as reliable indicators of the caliber of nursing care being provided, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

Historical

The next category we looked at is short-term care, where this facility received a B. Believe it or not, this proved to be this nursing home's least impressive area. A nursing home could be doing a lot worse when their worst score still rates higher than most other nursing homes. Our short-term care scores are arguably most critical for patients in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not only nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. We were not able to find information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The final datapoint we assessed in this category is the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
