Historical

To pair with its decent overall grade, we gave this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. This grade is far more impressive than its overall grade. Our inspection grades account for a host of factors found on a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher grades in this area tend to have few severe deficiencies. It does not appear that we were able to find deficiency data for this facility. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

This facility also performed favorably in the area of long-term care, where we gave it a score of A. Few nursing homes fared more favorably in this category. Nursing homes that excel in long-term care typically provide residents with closer supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. After assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is significantly higher than most nursing homes. Lastly, we looked at the facility's number of hospitalizations. Here we found that this facility had 2.25 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days.

Historical

Next we wanted to quickly point out one of this facility's major weaknesses. In the area of nursing care, we gave this nursing home a lowly grade of F. The nursing score analyzes many factors, most of which are based on levels of nurse staffing. With a meager 3.2 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, this place's nurse staffing levels were far below average. To pair with its subpar totals in the area of nursing hours per patient, this nursing home also did not perform as well in the quality-based measures we looked at in determining our nursing scores. We looked at the percentage of residents experiencing major falls and pressure ulcers. This place had more falls and pressure ulcers than the average facility. This could be a bad sign when you consider that many falls and bed sores are preventable with better nursing care. These metrics hurt this facility's nursing grade significantly.

Historical

Turning to our next category, this facility didn't fare well. Due to a poor grade of F in short-term care, this was this nursing home's worst category grade. Our short-term care ratings are important for individuals in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a broad scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. It appears that this facility was below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the measures we looked at. The final metric we assessed in this category is the number of patients who returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 26.8 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, this was well below average.
