Historical

One of the reasons this place is a quality facility is that it earned a very impressive inspection score. Inspections is its best category. In this area, we awarded this facility an A-. Our inspection scores weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better scores in this category tend to have few severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 8 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Historical

Another one of this nursing home's above average category scores came in the area of long-term care. We gave them one of our higher scores in that category, with a score of B+. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 94.78261 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is better than most nursing homes. Lastly, we looked at its number of hospitalizations. Here we found that this place had 2.9 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. While this wasn't as strong as most of its other scores in this area, this number may be skewed for some nursing homes based on some of the medical complexity of patients.

Historical

This nursing home also received a strong nursing score. In fact, we awarded it an above average grade of B in this area. In determining a nursing home's nursing grade, we weigh the number of hours nurses are seeing patients as well as the levels of training of those nurses. This nursing home provides 3.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

The next category we analyzed is short-term care. We gave it a B- in that area. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this area. In computing our short-term care ratings, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The objective is to formulate a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. This nursing home employs both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities employ these skilled professionals. Finally, we looked at the number of patients that returned home from this nursing home. We found that it performed better than most nursing homes with 52.2 percent of its residents returning home.
