Historical

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with better scores in this area most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Historical

Another one of this facility's impressive category scores came in the area of long-term care. We awarded them one of our more positive grades in that category, with a grade of B+. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in this category typically provide consistent around the clock care to make sure residents are well cared for. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients healthy. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes.

Historical

This nursing home also received a strong nursing score. In fact, we awarded it an above average grade of B+ in this area. When computing our nursing ratings, we analyze both nursing hours and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0 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 nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Historical

The final area we scored ended up being this facility's weakest area. However, even its weakest link would be a strength for most nursing homes. In fact, we awarded it an above average grade of B in short-term care. Our short-term care grade is commonly employed to measure a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To offer highly graded rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to provide better levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. We were not able to locate information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last datapoint we considered in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that 43 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
