Historical

Although we did not rate this nursing home favorably overall, we want to point out its relatively favorable government inspections in recent years. We gave it a B+ in this area, which is much better than its overall score. Our inspection ratings are based on several pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these reports. You should especially avoid nursing homes with severe deficiencies linked to endangerment of patients. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Historical

One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing score. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B-. There are a number of criteria included in this area. Most of the subcategories relate to the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 3.2 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a low total compared with most facilities. Lastly, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this facility actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is usually a good indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place.

Historical

This facility's next best category is its short-term care score, where it was given a grade of C. In crafting our short-term care grades, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The objective is to create a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Fortunately, this nursing home offers both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities offer both. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. This place performed better than most nursing homes in this area with 51 percent of its patients returning home. For most facilities, fewer than half of their short-term residents are able to return home.

Historical

The last area we graded is long-term care, which turned out to be a weak spot for this nursing home. We awarded this facility a grade of just D for the area of long-term care. When facilities receive a score in this range in long-term care it generally means the facility did not perform well in our measures relating to patient care. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination record. Candidly, we were a bit worried that this nursing home vaccinated 32.553604 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which happens to be several points less than the national average. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1.52 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.
