Historical

One of the reasons this place ended up being a great nursing home is that it received an A+ in our inspections category. This is as good as it gets in this category. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this area most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.

This facility is also strong in the area of short-term care, where it received a score of B+. It performed more favorably than most nursing homes in this category. In forming our short-term care ratings, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our goal is to devise a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Unfortunately, we were not able to locate information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. This place outperformed the majority of nursing homes in the country with 51.1 percent of its residents returning home. This is a higher rate than most facilities.

Historical

Adding to its profile, this facility also earned a grade of B+ for its nursing rating. This is a well above average score in this category. The nursing rating assesses quite a few factors, however, the primary one is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home averages 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 facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

The next category we scored is long-term care. This nursing home was given a very good long-term care rating this year, with a B-. Even though this is not nearly as strong as many of its other grades, this is nevertheless a respectable grade in this category. If you are seeking services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care scores. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 98.373985 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is higher than most nursing homes. The last datapoint we assessed is its hospitalization rate. While it had 2.32 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted metric was not too bad.
