We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility has received near flawless health inspections recently. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this area. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

We also would like to emphasize the fact that this nursing home was given a first-rate grade of A in our short-term care area. In determining our short-term care grades, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The goal is to create a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. We weren't able to track down registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home, which as an area this facility performed much more favorably. We found that it outperformed the vast majority of facilities with 69.5 percent of its patients returning home. This is a significantly higher rate than most nursing homes.

Historical

The next category we analyzed is long-term care. This facility was given a favorable long-term care grade, with a grade of B+ in this category. When nursing homes receive this type of score in long-term care it is typically a good sign for patient care and indicates that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses aids. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 97.89474 percent of its residents. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients healthy. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.99 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Historical

Moving on to our last category, this nursing home was given a strong nursing rating. We awarded it a B+ in this category, topping off one of our more impressive profiles. Our nursing score is based on quite a few factors, many of which are associated with quantities of nurse staffing. This facility provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at certain nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these metrics as good measures of the quality of nursing care offered, since better care tends to reduce these problems.
