Historical

We also wanted to point out the fact that this facility has earned excellent government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A in this area. Our inspection grades weigh a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this category generally have very few severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple relatively minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. In that area, we gave this facility an A. The nursing grade consists of many components, most of which are tied to nursing hours. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed better than average in this area. This is often a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

In addition, this facility also was awarded favorable long-term care scores in our assessment. In fact, we gave it one of our better scores in that category, with a grade of B. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in long-term care it typically means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 96.666664 percent of its residents, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia is often a deadly condition for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a facility doesn't leave this to chance. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 1.23 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes.

Historical

The last area we looked at was short-term care, in which this nursing home received a grade of B. Even though this ended up being its weakest category score, this is still an impressive score. With our short-term care category, we strive to craft a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we look at a facility's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. It doesn't appear that this facility provided information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
