Historical

This nursing home surprisingly performed well in the category of short-term care. We gave it a B for that area. In computing our short-term care ratings, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our purpose is to devise a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients that ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. This nursing home performed better in this area than in its staffing levels. It performed as well as just about any facility with 60.7 percent of its residents returning home.

Historical

This facility performed well in the area of inspections also. In fact, we gave it a grade of B- for that category, which is a solid grade. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are quite insignificant. This place was assessed 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to resident safety or health. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Historical

We gave this facility a grade of just D for our nursing rating. Our nursing grade weighs several components, however, the main consideration is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home provides 3.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day, which is slightly below the national average. This nursing home also had terrible marks in some of the quality-based metrics to go along with its low nursing hour totals. We looked at the percent of patients suffering pressure ulcers and we were disappointed. This facility was at roughly 150 percent of the national average in this metric.

Historical

Switching gears to the final category, this facility really didn't fare very well in this area either. Due to a very poor grade of F in long-term care, this is just about as bad as it gets. For residents looking for a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 99.69788 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is higher than most nursing homes. Surprisingly, this place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had just 1.21 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
