Historical

The main thing propping up this nursing home's profile is its elite nursing rating. We gave this facility an A- in that category. Our nursing rating analyzes many subcategories, but the primary consideration is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. With 4.8 hours of nursing care per resident per day, this nursing home surpassed the overwhelming majority of facilities. Finally, this nursing home was also above average in each of the major quality measures we looked at in this category. By way of illustration, it performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. These areas are generally reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care a nursing home provides.

We also awarded this facility a middle of the pack score in the area of short-term care, with a grade of C. In determining our short-term care ratings, we size up the nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other types of therapists. This score is generally a reliable measure of a nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who returned home from this facility. It performed respectably in this area with 46.8 percent of its residents returning home.

Historical

The next area we analyzed is long-term care, which is this facility's worst category. We awarded this nursing home a D in that area. Naturally, this grade pulled down the nursing home's overall profile a bit. For prospective patients seeking a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. After looking at nursing hours provided by this nursing home, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. Based on its grade in this category, we were surprised to discover that this facility performed reasonably well both of these statistics. Indeed, this facility vaccinated 97.8022 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which appears to be higher than many nursing homes. To our surprise, this place also wasn't as bad as we expected at keeping its patients out of the hospital. While it had 2.14 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted score wasn't bad due to it having more complicated patients.
