Historical

We want to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received a much better grade for nursing than it received overall. In fact, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A-. We scrutinized the licensure of nurses working for the facility, in addition to the quantity of hours those nurses spent with residents, in computing our score in this area. This particular nursing home provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed certain nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these areas as reliable measures of the caliber of nursing care provided, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

Historical

We also gave this nursing home an impressive score in short-term care. This facility earned a grade of B in this category, which is one of our better grades. Short-term care ratings are critical for individuals needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a wide range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, we weren't able to locate information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last datapoint we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients that who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Historical

We also gave this facility a middle of the road score in the category of long-term care, where we awarded it a B-. Long-term care grades assess a facility's personal care rather than the skilled nursing and healthcare services that are critical to a rehabilitation facility. After considering the amount of nursing care, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination record. We were optimistic to discover that this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Lastly, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Historical

In our last category, inspections proved to be this nursing home's weakest link. It received a C in this category. Inspection grades relate to a nursing home's government inspections. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively minor. This place was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were in any of the categories labeled G through L. This indicates that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to create an imminent danger to patient safety or health. We really didn't consider anything on this place's inspection reports to be overly alarming.
