Historical

While this nursing home's overall grade was not bad, it really excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G through L. This tells you that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

This nursing home also was given a positive short-term care score. As a matter of fact, we awarded it a grade of B in that category, which happens to be one of our more favorable scores. Short-term care grades are commonly used to score a nursing home's rehabilitation services. In order to offer highly graded rehabilitation services, facilities generally must provide higher levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. It does not appear that this nursing home provided registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. The last datapoint we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that 40.1 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of B-. The nursing grade assesses several factors, however, the primary one is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, our nursing ratings also factor in some quality-focused statistics. We especially look at the percent of residents who experienced pressure ulcers and major falls. Sometimes these metrics are measures of the quality of nursing care, since superior care can reduce these issues.

Historical

The next area we scored is long-term care. This nursing home received a grade of C for this area. Our long-term care ratings are more critical for residents needing more traditional services related to personal care. Once we finished looking at the amount of nursing care, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were optimistic to discover that this facility vaccinates 99.01961 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Lastly, we looked at the nursing home's number of hospitalizations. We found that this facility had 2.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, this figure was not quite as favorable than its other scores in this category.
