Historical

The primary reason this turned out to be a decent nursing home is that it earned an elite inspection score. Its inspection score was far superior to its overall grade. In our inspections category, we gave this facility an A. Our inspection grades are tied to pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that excel in this area tend to have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This place was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Historical

One of this nursing home's better category scores came in the area of short-term care. This turned out to be its second best category. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-. Our short-term care grade is typically used to grade a facility's performance with rehabilitation. To provide highly scored rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to have better levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. One of this nursing home's strength is that it offers more hours of physical therapy per week to its residents. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients that were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 42.9 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually below the national average.

Historical

This nursing home's weakest area is long-term care, which is the final category we assessed. In this area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of just D. In a long-term care setting, the nursing home's primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1.17 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
