Historical

The main reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it received an excellent inspection grade. Its inspection grade was far superior to its overall grade. In our inspections category, we gave it a grade of A. Inspection scores are tied to many items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that score well in this category have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Based on this, we still had a generally positive view of this nursing home's inspections.

We also awarded this facility a favorable grade in nursing. This facility earned a grade of B in this category, which is one of our better grades. The nursing rating features a variety of factors. The most heavily weighted one is the amount of time nurses spend with patients. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at certain nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these datapoints as reliable measures of the quality of nursing care being provided, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

The next area we looked at was short-term care, where this nursing home was given a grade of C in this category. With our short-term care category, we try to create a fair measure for rehabilitation. In this process, we analyze the facility's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the typical facility. The final item we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 24.9 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.

Historical

Switching gears to our final category, we gave this nursing home a D in the area of long-term care. This was the nursing home's least impressive category score. When nursing homes receive this type of score in long-term care it is often a bad sign for patient care and it may mean that the nursing home is not as well-staffed with nurses and aids. After considering the amount of nursing care, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination records. Candidly, we were a bit alarmed this nursing home vaccinated just 58.75 percent of its residents against pneumonia. The last statistic we assessed was the facility's hospitalization rate. We found that this facility had 1.8 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is a higher hospitalization rate than most nursing homes, but it is not as bad as we expected.
