Historical

While this facility's overall grade was not bad, it really fared well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A+ for that category, which is one of our best scores. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to patient health or safety. A few relatively minor dings are not the end of the world.

Historical

We also awarded this facility a favorable score in long-term care. This facility earned a grade of B+ in this area, which turns out to be one of our better scores. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in long-term care tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure residents are kept in good health. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 72.818794 percent of its residents, which is a few points below what we were hoping for. The last datapoint we assessed was its hospitalization rate. Although it had 2.66 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, its risk adjusted metric was close to the middle of the pack since it had more complicated patients.

Historical

Unfortunately, this nursing home only received a grade of D for its short-term care rating, which is not a very good score. In calculating our short-term care grades, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The goal is to formulate a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most nursing homes. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who eventually returned home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Historical

The next area we analyzed was nursing, which turned out to be this facility's worst area. We gave this facility a grade of D in this category. Naturally, this category pulled down the facility's overall grade to some degree. The nursing grade includes a variety of data points. The most important one is the quantity of hours nurses spent with patients. This facility provided just 3.1 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. On top of receiving below average scores for nursing hours, this nursing home was less impressive in some of the quality-based measures we looked at in computing our nursing scores. We looked at the percentage of residents suffering pressure ulcers and found this nursing home was at approximately 1.5 times the national average in this statistic.
