Historical

Another one of this nursing home's more favorable category scores was in the category of short-term care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B. Short-term care grades are typically used to grade a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To offer high-end rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to feature higher levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Fortunately, this nursing home offers both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities offer both. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This place outperformed the majority of facilities in the country with 53.5 percent of its residents returning home. This is a higher rate than most facilities.

We also awarded this nursing home a decent score in the area of long-term care, where we awarded it a grade of C. In a long-term care setting, the primary goal is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. After assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 95.26316 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is better than the vast majority of nursing homes. Finally, we looked at its number of hospitalizations. Although it had 3.07 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, its risk adjusted score was not too far off the national average.

Historical

The last category we assessed is inspections. The facility received a grade of C in this category. Our inspection grades are tied to many items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these reports. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to the well being of residents. This nursing home was hit with 7 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were category G through L deficiencies. This means that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies to be an imminent danger to patient health or safety. We really didn't consider anything on this facility's inspection report to be too concerning.
