This nursing home earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to emphasize its excellent health inspection reports in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A- in this category. These inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in the industry.

Another one of this nursing home's more favorable category grades came in the area of short-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of B. In our short-term care grade, we attempt to create a fair barometer for rehabilitation. In doing so, we look at the nursing home's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. One of this nursing home's strengths is physical therapy hours. We found that it offers more hours with physical therapists to its residents than most facilities. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. It performed decently , with 46.8 percent of its residents able to return home.

Historical

This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of B- in this category. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this category. In determining a nursing home's nursing score, we assess the quantity of hours nurses are caring for residents and the skill levels of the nurses. This place provided just 3.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other nursing homes. Finally, we look at quality-based statistics, such as the percentage of patients who sustained pressure ulcers and major falls. Sometimes these datapoints are measures of the quality of nursing care.

Historical

The next category we analyzed is long-term care. We gave it a C in that area. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this area. In a long-term care environment, the nursing home's primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is better than the vast majority of nursing homes. The last statistic we looked at was the nursing home's hospitalization rate. Here we found that this nursing home had 3.72 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. While this figure is somewhat concerning, this number can be skewed for some nursing homes based on the preexisting medical conditions of patients.
