Historical

Although we were not high on this facility overall, we awarded it a B+ for our inspections rating. This grade is far more impressive than the facility's overall grade. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be quite insignificant. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

The next best category we gave this facility in any category came in the area of long-term care, where we awarded it a B-. Long-term care ratings are based in part on a facility's volume of nursing care. This means a vast range of personal care services, ranging from help with activities of daily living to routine healthcare services. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 57.333336 percent of its patients. This is multiple points lower than the national average. The last datapoint we looked at was the facility's hospitalization rate. While it had 2.33 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted metric was more favorable.

We also gave this nursing home a solid grade in the area of short-term care, where we awarded it a C. In determining our short-term care grades, we look at the nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. This category is frequently a meaningful assessment of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. This nursing home boosted its score in this category by offering more than 50% more physical therapy hours to its residents than the average facility. The last statistic we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to return home from the facility. We found that it performed respectably with 48.9 percent of its patients returning home.

Historical

The final category we rated is nursing, which is a low point for this facility. We awarded this nursing home a D in our nursing category. Our nursing grade is based on several factors, however, the primary one is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This facility provided 3.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is below the national average. In addition to receiving below average scores for nursing hours, this facility was a bit less impressive in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at in computing our nursing grades. We looked at the percentage of residents suffering pressure ulcers and found that this facility was at roughly 150 percent of the national average in this metric. This is a bad sign when you consider that many pressure ulcers are preventable with better nursing care. This statistic really dragged down this facility's nursing score significantly.
