Historical

This facility received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its excellent inspections in recent years. We gave them an A in this category. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. You really can't go wrong with a deficiency-free inspection report.

In addition, we also wanted to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received positive short-term care marks in this assessment. We awarded them one of our more impressive scores in this category, with a B+. This turned out to be the nursing home's second strongest grade. In calculating our short-term care grades, we scrutinize a facility's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. This score is often a solid measure of a facility's rehabilitation services. Unfortunately, we weren't able to locate information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

We also awarded this facility a favorable grade in nursing. This facility earned a grade of B in this category, which is one of our better grades. We scrutinized the levels of nurses at the facility, as well as the number of hours those nurses spent with patients, in computing our grade in this category. This facility provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at certain nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these datapoints as good measures of the quality of nursing care being provided, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

Historical

This facility's worst category is long-term care, which is the last area we looked at. We gave it an abysmal F for this area. Despite several decent scores in other areas, this grade is still disappointing so we wanted to point it out. Nursing homes that do not score well in this category often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in a few of the areas of routine healthcare services we assessed. After considering the quantity of nursing care, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. We were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home vaccinated just 84.375 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1.33 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.
