Historical

To go along with its relatively modest overall score, we gave this nursing home an A- for our inspections rating. This grade is far more impressive than its overall grade. These inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This indicates that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to be an imminent risk to patient safety or health. A couple of minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

This facility was given its next most favorable category grade in the category of short-term care. We awarded this facility a B- in this area, which is an acceptable score. In our short-term care rating, we seek to craft a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation services. In this process, we assess a nursing home's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. This place performed respectably in this metric with 49.1 percent of its patients returning home.

Historical

The next highest grade we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of B-. Our nursing rating is based on the facility's nurse staffing levels. We weigh both the levels of training of the nurses and the amount of time spent with residents. According to its CMS data, this place provided an average of 3.9 hours of nursing care per resident daily, which was above average. Finally, we also factored a few quality-based metrics into our nursing grades. This place was relatively weak in two of the areas we focus on, with subpar scores for minimizing its patients' pressure ulcers and major falls. These areas are generally reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care available.

Historical

The next area we analyzed is long-term care, which ended up being this nursing home's weakest category. Sadly, it received a lowly F for this category, which is certainly very disappointing. Nursing homes that receive this type of grade in this category may not provide the type of consistent 24/7 care that some other facilities offer. While we determined this facility has a favorable volume of nursing hours provided by aids and other nursing staff, we found its vaccination rate to be a bit slightly lower than we anticipated. This nursing home gave the pneumonia vaccine to just 81.94444 percent of its patients. This is one statistic we would really like to see this facility improve. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had just 1.35 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
