Historical

While we did not have many positive things to say about this facility's overall score, it earned a respectable inspection report this year. It received a decent grade in that area with a B-. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. Lastly, this nursing home was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. This is generally a really bad sign. We would never recommend this facility.

Historical

We also awarded this facility a grade of B- for our nursing rating. Nursing scores are largely based on the facility's nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 3.8 hours of nursing care per patient per day. At least one fourth of this care was provided by registered nurses, which are highly skilled nurses. This is a high percentage of skilled nursing care. We weight these hours more in calculating our nursing scores. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics and this place excelled in some of these areas. With fewer than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed very well in this metric.

Historical

This nursing home was given its next most favorable category score in the area of short-term care. We awarded this facility a B- in this category, which is a decent grade. Our short-term care ratings are considered to be more meaningful for folks in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. This means not only nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. One reason for this facility's strong score in this category is that it provides more care with registered nurses to its residents than the average nursing home. The final metric we considered in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. It was above average in this area with 52.6 percent of its residents returning home.

Historical

The final area we scored is long-term care. We gave this facility a C in that category. Long-term care grades are used to gauge a nursing home's performance as a traditional nursing home, as opposed to focusing on the skilled nursing services provided by a rehabilitation facility. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. We were optimistic to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 95.41779 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 1.4 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home.
