Historical

Although we didn't grade this nursing home favorably overall, we did give it an excellent grade in the category of inspections, where it earned a grade of A-. Inspection ratings account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid facilities with a list of severe deficiencies flagged. While this place had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Historical

This facility's long-term care score is one of its better grades. The nursing home was given a grade of B- in this area. In determining our long-term care ratings, we look at the personal care received by a facility's patients. One of the factors we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Fortunately, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 99.50372 percent of its residents. Unfortunately, its hospitalization rate was less impressive. We found that this place had 2.46 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days.

Historical

We gave this facility a grade of just D for our nursing rating. The nursing rating analyzes many factors, but the primary one is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This facility provided 3.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is below the national average. On top of receiving below average marks for total nursing hours, this place was a bit less impressive in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at in computing our nursing scores. We looked at the percent of patients suffering pressure ulcers and found that this place was at approximately 1.5 times the national average in this statistic.

Historical

The final area we analyzed is short-term care. This facility received a rock bottom grade of F in this category. With our short-term care rating, we endeavor to create a sound barometer for rehabilitation. In this process, we assess a facility's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Considering its weak rating in this area, we weren't shocked to find this nursing home provided far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most other facilities. The last measure we looked at in this area is the number of patients that who were able to eventually return home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 21.8 percent of its residents returning home.
