Historical

In addition to performing well in its overall grade, this facility performed at an even higher level in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A. Inspection ratings account for several factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this area generally have very few severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.

Among this nursing home's other accomplishments is its superb short-term care grade. It received one of our strongest grades in that area, with a score of A. In the category of short-term care, we seek to evaluate measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. We were very impressed to find that this place offers its residents substantially more physical therapist hours than most other nursing homes. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that it outperformed the vast majority of facilities in the nation in this area with 74.6 percent of its residents returning home.

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-. This facility didn't perform quite as well in this category as it did in some other categories. Nevertheless, this is still a respectable score. Nursing ratings are based in large part on quality and quantity of nursing care. This particular nursing home provided 5.1 hours of nursing care per resident per day, which was among the higher totals we found. Lastly, our nursing ratings also factor in quality measures, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this metric.

Historical

Switching gears to the final category, this facility was given a respectable long-term care score of C. In calculating our long-term care ratings, we assess the facility's personal care services. One of the factors we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours is vaccines. It does not look like this facility submitted vaccination data. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
