Historical

We want to point out that this nursing home outperformed its overall score in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless government inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our best grades in that area with an A+. Our inspection ratings weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this area generally have very few severe deficiencies. While this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Historical

We also want to note that this nursing home was awarded a strong long-term care score. Indeed, we awarded it one of our most impressive grades in this area with a grade of A-. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 99.6063 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents out of the hospital. This place was also able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Although it had 1.87 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, its risk adjusted score was better than most nursing homes due to it having more complicated patients.

Another strength of this facility is its favorable grade in nursing. We gave them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of D. When calculating a facility's nursing grade, we assess the amount of time nurses commit to residents and the levels of training of those nurses. This facility provided just 2.8 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also looked at a few quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This place was above average in two of the statistics we considered, with good marks for minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. These datapoints are typically reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care provided.

Historical

The last area we assessed was short-term care, which ended up being this facility's weakest area. It received a lowly F in this area, which is clearly a major disappointment. In determining our short-term care ratings, we scrutinize the facility's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This rating is generally a reliable measure of the nursing home's rehabilitation. In this nursing home's case, we found that it provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The final item we assessed in this category is the number of patients who ultimately returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 39.7 percent of its residents returning home.
