Historical

The main reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it received an elite inspection grade. In fact, its inspection grade was far superior to its overall score. In the inspections category, we gave it an A+. Arguably the most important factor we consider in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this area typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This means CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Historical

This facility also excelled in the area of long-term care, with top notch grade of A in this category. Facilities that do well in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. After we finished looking at the volume of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 95.15152 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia can be a deadly health condition for nursing home patients so we prefer when a facility does not take any chances. Lastly, we looked at the facility's number of hospitalizations. With 1.9 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home was just about middle of the road in this area.

Historical

Another strength of this nursing home is its favorable grade in nursing. We gave them one of our better scores in that area, with an D. We looked at the licensure of nurses employed by the nursing home, in addition to the number of hours those nurses worked with residents, in determining our score in this area. This particular nursing home provided 3.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day, which is below average. Finally, we also looked at a few quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This facility was above average in two of the major datapoints we focus on, with solid scores for minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Historical

The last area we analyzed is short-term care, proved to be this nursing home's worst area. We gave this nursing home a grade of D in that area. This is one of just a couple of dings in a strong profile. In determining these short-term care grades, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our purpose is to formulate a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The last area we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. This place fared better in this area, with 53.1 percent of its residents returning home. This was just about this nursing home's only redeeming quality in this category.
