Historical

Although we didn't rate this facility favorably overall, we did give it an excellent grade in the area of inspections, where it earned an A. Our inspection ratings weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid nursing homes with a list of deficiencies flagged. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Historical

We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of C. Nursing scores are largely tied to the facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 3.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, our nursing grades also factor in some quality-focused statistics. Specifically, we look at the percent of residents who sustained pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these areas as reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

Historical

The next category we graded is short-term care, where this nursing home was given a C in this category. Our short-term care grade is commonly used to assess a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation To have highly scored rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to offer higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. One of this nursing home's strengths is physical therapy hours. We found that it offers more hours with physical therapists to its residents than most facilities. The final statistic we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 38 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.

Historical

This nursing home's worst area is long-term care, which is the last area we assessed. In this category, we gave this facility a grade of just D. In a long-term care setting, the nursing home's primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 99.492386 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is better than the vast majority of nursing homes. We were far less impressed with the facility's hospitalization rate. We found that this place had 2.99 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is nearly twice the national average.
