Historical

This nursing home has earned near flawless health inspections in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A- in this area. Our inspection ratings weigh a host of factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this area typically have few severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this facility had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor dings are not the end of the world.

Historical

This nursing home was given an impressive short-term care score as well. We awarded it one of our higher scores in that area with a grade of B+. In calculating these short-term care grades, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The goal is to create a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this nursing home submitted registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients that were able to return home from this facility. We found that it performed respectably in this area with 48.1 percent of its residents returning home.

Historical

The next area we rated is long-term care. In this category, we awarded this nursing home a strong grade of B. Facilities that excel in long-term care tend to provide residents with more supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. One of the statistics we considered on top of nursing hours is vaccines. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its residents. This is a reliable method to minimize unnecessary deaths and hospitalizations for the aged 65 and up population. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1.18 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home.
