Historical

The main reason this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received an elite nursing grade. In fact, we gave this facility a grade of A-. Our nursing rating is largely associated with the facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Historical

Another one of this nursing home's better category grades was in the category of short-term care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B. Our short-term care scores are based in part on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a wide scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, we were not able to track down information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 38.1 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Historical

This nursing home received its third highest category score in the area of long-term care. We gave this nursing home a grade of B- in this category, which is a respectable grade. Our long-term care scores are more critical for patients requiring more traditional services associated with activities of daily living. After considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is more than the vast majority of nursing homes. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1.64 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes.

Historical

In the last category of inspections, this facility did not fare well. Sadly, it received an F in this category. This pulled this nursing home's overall grade down as we heavily weight this category. For places with bad inspection grades, you should really scrutinize any severe deficiencies found on their recent inspection reports. This nursing home had 2 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they caused a risk to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility also received 11 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.
