Historical

We gave this nursing home one of our better grades in short-term care, where it received a grade of A-. This is much better than the facility's overall grade, which was certainly not elite. Our short-term care grade is generally used to grade a nursing home's rehabilitation services. In order to provide good rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to offer better levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. When we assessed this facility's nursing hours, we found it offered substantially more care from registered nurses than most nursing homes. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

We also wanted to point out that this nursing home received a great nursing grade. In fact, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A-. Our nursing rating is mostly associated with a nursing home's nurse staffing. This place offers 3.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily, of which more than an hour of those were provided by registered nurses. This is one of the more highly skilled nurses. In determining our nursing grades, we attach more significance to hours performed by registered nurses. Lastly, we also looked at certain nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these areas as reliable measures of the quality of nursing care offered, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

We would also like to draw your attention to this facility's strong inspection rating. This facility earned a grade of B in this category, which is one of our better grades. Our inspection ratings account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this area typically have few severe deficiencies. This nursing home was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered severe. This means that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies to be an imminent risk to resident health or safety. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.

Historical

This facility's weakest category was long-term care, which is the final category we assessed. We gave it an abysmal F for this area. Even with multiple solid scores in other areas, this grade is nevertheless concerning so we would like to to draw your attention to it. For patients seeking a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are an important measure. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 96.7213 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is higher than the average nursing home. To our surprise, this place also keeps its patients out of the hospital. It had just 1.49 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
