In addition to having a decent overall score, we also wanted to point out that this facility received favorable nursing marks this year. We gave them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B+. This proved to be the facility's top score. There are several factors within this category. Many of these criteria relate to levels of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed better than average in this area. This is often a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can often be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

It should also be noted that this nursing home's inspection grade was strong as well. We gave it a B for inspections, which is one of our better scores. Inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This tells you that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to patient health or safety. A few minor dings aren't necessarily something to panic about.

In addition, we also would like to point out that this facility received strong long-term care marks in this assessment. We awarded them one of our more favorable scores in that category, with a B. For long-term care residents, the primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 62.100452 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is a bit less than we were hoping for but still a decent figure. This nursing home was also able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 1.45 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days.

Historical

Turning to the next area, this facility was awarded a decent short-term care grade of C. Our short-term care grade is typically used to judge a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to provide quality rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to offer higher levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this nursing home submitted data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The final statistic we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 22.4 percent of this facility's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.
