Historical

In addition to being a respectable facility overall, this facility really excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned a grade of A+. Few nursing homes performed better in this category. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this category most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This particular nursing home received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Another one of this nursing home's stronger areas was in the category of nursing care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B. There are several subcategories within this grade. Most of the datapoints relate to nurse staffing. This nursing home provides an incredible 4.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is much more care than what is provided by most facilities. Lastly, this facility was also above average in each of the major quality-based metrics we looked at in this category. By way of illustration, it performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. These areas are generally reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care a nursing home provides.

The third area we graded is long-term care, where this facility received a B- in this area. In the area of long-term care, we focus on the amount of services provided by a nursing home, as opposed to more healthcare-oriented services. On top of offering quality levels of nursing care, this facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 95.894424 percent of its residents. This percentage is higher than most nursing homes. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Historical

The final area we looked at was short-term care. We gave it a C in this category. This is a fair grade in this area. With our short-term care category, we seek to create a sound barometer for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we analyze the nursing home's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, this nursing home offers both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities offer both. The final measure we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 42.1 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.
