Historical

We awarded this nursing home one of our better scores in nursing, with an A-. This is a notably better grade than the facility's overall score, which was decent but not in the elite range. Our nursing grade is based on the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We consider both the levels of licensure of those nurses and the quantity of hours spent with residents. This nursing home provides 3.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

This nursing home also was given a strong score in our short-term care category. We awarded this nursing home an above average grade of B+ in this area. In the area of short-term care, we try to assess indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. When we assessed this facility's nursing hours, we found it offered more care from registered nurses than most nursing homes. The last measure we assessed in this category is the number of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home rather than remaining at the facility permanently.

Turning to our inspection category, it appears this facility has earned respectable inspections in recent years as well. We gave it a grade of B- in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection ratings. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively insignificant. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This tells you the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Historical

Switching gears to our last category, this nursing home didn't fare very well. Due to a bottom of the barrel grade of F in long-term care, this was its poorest grade. Nursing homes that don't fare well in this category typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine personal care we assessed. Once we finished looking at the amount of care provided by nurses, we turned to the facility's vaccination data. Frankly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home vaccinated just 82.20339 percent of its patients for pneumonia. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 1.24 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
