It should be noted that this nursing home's inspection score outpaced its overall grade. We gave it a B+ for its inspections rating, which is one of our better scores. Arguably the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing score. In fact, nursing proved to be its second best category grade. In that category, we gave this nursing home an B-. The nursing grade weighs quite a few components, but the paramount consideration is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility provided 4.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is an impressive figure. Lastly, our nursing ratings also factor in quality-based metrics, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed admirably in this metric.

Historical

This nursing home was awarded its third best category score in the area of short-term care. We gave this nursing home a grade of C in this category, which is an acceptable grade. In the category of short-term care, we seek to assess measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We look at a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the typical facility. The hope is always that this does not adversely affect the quality of care. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. This facility performed better in this statistic. It performed better than most facilities in this metric with 53.4 percent of its residents returning home.

Historical

The final area we assessed is long-term care. For that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of C. If you are looking for anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care ratings. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 93.00699 percent of its residents. This is a few points below what we anticipated but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. Lastly, we looked at the nursing home's number of hospitalizations. This place did not excel here either, with 2.94 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Although this figure is quite a bit higher than the national average, this statistic may be skewed for some facilities based on the preexisting medical conditions of residents.
