Historical

In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it received an A+. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite minor. While this facility had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and 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 safety or health. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.

Another one of this facility's more favorable category scores was in the area of short-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility a B+. It actually outperformed most facilities in this category. In the category of short-term care, we seek to assess measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists. 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 number of residents that ultimately returned home from this nursing home. On top of excelling in the area of physical therapy hours, we found that it fared as well as just about any nursing home in the nation in this area with 56.9 percent of its patients returning home.

This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of C. Our nursing rating assesses a handful of subcategories, but the paramount one is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This particular nursing home provided 3.8 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed a few nursing quality measures and this place excelled in some of these areas. With fewer than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it fared well in this subcategory.

Historical

The final category we analyzed is long-term care. We awarded this nursing home a grade of D for long-term care, rendering this the nursing home's weakest grade. For prospective patients looking for a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are very important. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Thankfully, this nursing home administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is a very respectable total. Surprisingly, this facility was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.95 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
