Historical

The main thing salvaging this nursing home's profile is its elite nursing score. In fact, we gave this facility a grade of A- in that category. We looked at the qualifications of nurses at the nursing home, in addition to the number of hours those nurses were with residents, in computing our score in this category. This nursing home offers high levels of nursing care, with an average of 5 hours per patient each day. This is more nursing care than most nursing homes provide. Lastly, we also factored a few quality measures into our nursing scores. This nursing home was on the weaker side in two of the major datapoints we assess, with below average figures for minimizing its patients' pressure ulcers and major falls. These areas are generally reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care offered.

Historical

Another one of this nursing home's higher category scores was in the area of short-term care. In that area, we gave this nursing home a grade of B+. Short-term care grades are often used to gauge a facility's rehabilitation services. To have good rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to have better levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final statistic we considered in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Historical

This facility received its next highest category grade in the category of long-term care. We gave this facility a C in this category, which is a respectable grade. Our long-term care grade focuses on a nursing home's personal care rather than the highly skilled therapy or healthcare services that are critical to a rehabilitation facility. While we determined this nursing home has a favorable volume of nursing hours provided by nurses aids and other nursing staff, we found its vaccine statistics to be somewhat below average. This facility gave the pneumonia vaccine to just 35.060974 percent of its patients. This is one statistic we would like to see this nursing home bring up. Nevertheless, this place keeps its residents out of the hospital. It had only 1.37 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days.

Historical

Moving on the final category of inspections, this nursing home did not fare well. It received an F in our inspection category. This dragged this facility's overall grade down as we heavily weight this category. You should pay special attention to any deficiencies on a facility's inspection reports when it receives this poor of an inspection score. We recommend you pay close attention to the level of severity of those deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they caused a risk to resident safety or health. Lastly, we also would like to point out that this nursing home received significant government fines recently exceeding $50,000. This usually signifies that inspectors grew tired after several years of bad health inspections.
