Historical

While this nursing home's overall grade was decent, it really excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A+ for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this place had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.

Historical

One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B-. Nursing ratings are tied to quantity of nursing care available. This place offers extremely high levels of nursing care, averaging 4.1 hours per patient daily. This is well above average. Lastly, we factored a few quality-based metrics into our nursing ratings. This place was relatively weak in two of the areas we looked at, with below average marks for minimizing its patients' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Historical

This nursing home's next highest category turned out to be its long-term care score, where it was given a grade of C. Our long-term care grade assesses a facility's personal care rather than the highly skilled therapy and healthcare services that are critical to a skilled nursing facility. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 92.96636 percent of its residents. This is slightly less than we were hoping for but still a reasonably acceptable figure. The last datapoint we looked at was the facility's hospitalization rate. While it had 2.06 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, its risk adjusted score was more favorable.

Historical

The last area we assessed is short-term care. We awarded this facility a D in the area of short-term care, leaving this as the nursing home's least impressive category. With our short-term care category, we try to create a valuable measure for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we assess the nursing home's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. It appears that this facility was subpar in multiple staffing metrics we focus on. In fact, it supplied fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most facilities. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 27.2 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. At most facilities, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
