Historical

In addition to receiving a strong overall score, this nursing home also received an elite long-term care grade. We gave it one of our better scores in that category, with a grade of A. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in long-term care it typically means it's well-staffed and is a quality place to reside on a permanent basis. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 98.70968 percent of its patients. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents healthy. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1.25 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home.

Historical

Among its many impressive scores, this facility earned an excellent nursing rating. In fact, we gave it an B+ in that category. Nursing grades are largely tied to the facility's level of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 3.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics 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 Michigan in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as employing a protocol of turning residents more frequently.

Historical

We also wanted to emphasize this facility's nearly flawless government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of B+ in this category. Inspection ratings weigh a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this area typically have very few of these severe deficiencies. While this place had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This means that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Historical

The next category we rated is short-term care. In this category, we awarded this facility a decent grade of C. This actually proved to be this nursing home's weakest category. In computing these short-term care grades, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our purpose is to devise a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. When we assessed this facility's nursing hours, we found it offered more care from registered nurses than most nursing homes. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 30.7 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of patients are able to return home so this facility is below average.
