Historical

While we were not high on this facility overall, we awarded it an A for our inspections rating. This score is far more impressive than the facility's overall score. Our inspection ratings are tied to several datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these reports. Most importantly, you should avoid nursing homes that have severe deficiencies linked to risks to resident well being. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Historical

This nursing home actually received a decent grade in the area of nursing as well. We awarded it a grade of C for that category, which is not a bad score. Our nursing grade is largely associated with the facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home averages just 2.6 hours of nursing care per resident daily, which is well below average. Lastly, while this place did not rank highly in terms of its nursing hours per resident, it fared much better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. In terms of the number of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, this place performed better than the national average.

Historical

Sadly, this nursing home's next highest category was long-term care. As it turns out, with a D in this category, it still fared somewhat poorly. When facilities receive a grade in this range in long-term care it generally means the nursing home did not perform well in our measures relating to patient care. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. Frankly, we were a bit worried that this facility vaccinated only 62.257496 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Finally, we looked at its number of hospitalizations. Here we found that this place fared poorly with 2.78 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, this figure is nearly twice the national average.

Historical

The final area we looked at is short-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F in this area, which is a very poor grade. Short-term care grades are often employed to judge a facility's performance with rehabilitation. To provide high-end rehabilitation services, facilities generally must provide higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. This definitely was not a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 30 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, around half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
