Historical

While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable nursing grade this year. We gave it a grade of B- in that category. There are a variety of criteria included in this area. Many of these criteria are tied to the quantity of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 2.9 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. While this place didn't really impress in terms of the quantity of nursing care provided, it performed admirably in a few of our quality measures. It was above average in two of the metrics we look at, with positive reviews for minimizing its patients' major falls and pressure ulcers. These metrics are indicators of the quality of nursing care available since many falls and bed sores are preventable.

Historical

Remarkably, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B- for its short-term care grade, which isn't too bad of a score. In our short-term care assessment, we try to craft a fair measure for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we assess a nursing home's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. It performed decently in this area, with 45.4 percent of its patients returning home.

Historical

This facility actually performed well in the area of inspections as well. In fact, we awarded it a B- for that category, which is a fairly impressive score. This is remarkable for a facility with such a poor overall grade. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Historical

The last category we assessed was long-term care, in which this nursing home was given a rock bottom grade here as well. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F in this category, which is obviously a major disappointment. Facilities that do not score well in long-term care often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in a few of the areas of routine healthcare services we looked at. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated just 78.01724 percent of its residents, which is a bit of a concern. To our surprise, this place was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 1.17 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
