Historical

The main reason this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received an elite nursing grade. In fact, we gave this facility a grade of A-. Our nursing grade looks at the facility's level of nurse staffing. We factor in both the levels of licensure of the nurses as well as the amount of time spent with residents. This facility provided 3.8 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at certain nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these metrics as predictive indicators of the caliber of nursing care provided, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

Historical

This facility's inspection rating appears to be one of its best features. The nursing home earned a C in this category. Our inspection ratings are based on many datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these reports. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to the well being of residents. Surprisingly, this place had a category J through K deficiency, which are some of the worst categories of deficiencies. This generally indicates that inspectors uncovered a deficiency which placed resident safety or health in immediate jeopardy. Finally, they also received 6 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is certainly not a great sign.

Historical

This facilities third most favorable category is short-term care. We awarded it a C in this area. This is essentially a middle of the pack grade in this area. In determining our short-term care scores, we assess a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other types of therapists. This rating is typically a solid measure of the facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. One reason for this facility's strong score in this category is that it provides more care with registered nurses to its residents than the average nursing home. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 19.6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their patients return home so this facility is below average.

Historical

The final area we looked at is long-term care, which turned out to be a low point for this nursing home. We gave this facility a grade of just D in long-term care. For prospective residents seeking a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Thankfully, this facility gave the vaccine to 97.961494 percent of its patients, which is an above average datapoint. To our surprise, this nursing home also keeps its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.7 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
