It should be noted that this facility's inspection grade outpaced its overall grade. We awarded it a grade of B+ for its inspections grade, which is a very solid score. Our inspection grades are based on many items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that score well in this area tend to have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

This facility also excelled in the area of nursing, where it received an B. When calculating a nursing home's nursing score, we weigh the number of hours nurses spend with residents as well as the levels of training of the nurses. This nursing home provides 3.8 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 look at these datapoints as reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care offered, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

Historical

The next area we analyzed was short-term care, where this nursing home was given a grade of C in this category. Our short-term care scores are vital for people in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a vast scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the measures we assessed. The real question is whether this also impacted quality of care. The final metric we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. This figure was below average.

Historical

The last area we assessed was long-term care. We gave it a grade of C in this category. This is a perfectly acceptable grade in this category. Long-term care grades are commonly used to assess a facility's performance as a traditional nursing home, as opposed to focusing more on the skilled nursing services provided by a skilled nursing facility. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 93.66197 percent of its residents. This is a bit lower than we expected but still a decent figure. On a more positive note, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
