Historical

This facility earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to emphasize its nearly flawless government inspection reports in recent years. We awarded them an A+ in this category. These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this place had some deficiencies on its report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.

Historical

Adding to this nursing home's list of strengths, it also earned an excellent nursing grade. We gave them an impressive grade of B- in this area. Our nursing rating is largely associated with a facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 3.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed admirably in this datapoint. Avoiding serious falls is often a reliable indicator that a facility has quality controls in place. Many falls can be prevented if a nursing home provides enough nurses aids to assist its residents.

Historical

The next category we assessed was long-term care, where this facility was given a grade of B- in this category. Our long-term care grade focuses on a facility's personal care rather than the highly skilled nursing and medical services that are critical to a skilled nursing facility. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Finally, we looked at the nursing home's number of hospitalizations. Here we found that this facility had 3.24 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. While this figure is somewhat concerning, this number can be skewed for some facilities due to the preexisting medical conditions of residents.

Historical

The next area we looked at is short-term care, is this facility's least impressive category. We awarded this facility a grade of D in that category. This was one of just a couple of weak points on a very solid profile. Our short-term care scores are based on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a vast spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 16.5 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, around half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
