Inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

This facilities second best category is short-term care. We awarded it a grade of B- in this category. This is essentially a middle of the pack grade in this category. With our short-term care rating, we seek to create a valuable barometer for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at the facility's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. We were pleased to find that this nursing home employs both registered nurses and physical therapists. The same can't be said for all nursing homes. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. In fact, we found that it outperformed the majority of facilities in the country with 55.8 percent of its residents returning home. This is a higher rate than most nursing homes.

Historical

This nursing home's nursing grade appears to be one of its better features. The facility received a grade of C in this category. Our nursing rating includes many subcategories, but the paramount one is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. According to CMS records, this facility averaged 3.9 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Keep in mind that when we compute our nursing ratings, we add more weight to hours performed by nurses with a higher level of training. Lastly, our nursing grades also factor in some quality-focused statistics. Specifically, we look at the percent of residents who sustained pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these metrics as predictive measures of the quality of nursing care, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

Historical

This nursing home's worst area was long-term care, which is the last area we analyzed. For this category, we gave this nursing home a grade of D. If you are looking for anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care ratings. After looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 95.27687 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is better than the majority of nursing homes. Surprisingly, this place also keeps its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 1.3 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
