Historical

On top of having a decent overall grade, we also would like to point out that this facility earned favorable government inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our better scores in this category, with a grade of B. This is a much better score than the facility's overall grade. Our inspection grades account for a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this area tend to have very few severe deficiencies. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. This is a great sign for this facility.

Historical

This facility also was awarded a favorable long-term care grade. In fact, we gave them a B in this area, which happens to be one of our more favorable scores. In a long-term care setting, the primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 79.66903 percent of its residents, which is somewhat less than we expected. The last statistic we assessed was the facility's hospitalization rate. We found that this facility had 2.24 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days.

Historical

This nursing home also received a strong grade in our nursing category. We awarded this nursing home an above average grade of B in this area. Nursing grades are heavily correlated with quality and quantity of nursing care. This nursing home provides 3.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a system of turning a patient at least once a day.

The next category we looked at is short-term care. We awarded this facility a C in that category. In the area of short-term care, we endeavor to assess indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Unfortunately, this facility was below average in terms of its level of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. The final metric we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from the facility. It performed respectably with 47.6 percent of its patients returning home.
