Historical

This nursing home's nursing grade was notably more impressive than its overall grade. With a strong performance in this category, it earned a quality score in that category with a B+. Our nursing score is based on a number of factors. The most heavily weighted factor is the number of hours nurses spend with residents. This nursing home provides an impressive 4.8 hours of nursing care per resident daily. Out of this total, nearly one quarter of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which is among the most highly skilled levels of nurses. Lastly, this place also performed well in several of the quality-based metrics we assessed. By way of illustration, in terms of the percentage of its patients sustaining falls which lead to major injury, this facility performed as well as just about any nursing home we looked at. Avoiding major falls is often a good indicator that a facility has quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be prevented if more nurses and better safety protocols are in place.

Historical

This facility also earned a strong inspection grade. Inspection grades are based on the facility's recent health inspections. We gave this facility a B in this area. Our inspection grades weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this area usually have very few of these severe deficiencies. While this facility had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Historical

This facilities third most favorable category is short-term care. We gave it a grade of B- in this category. This is essentially a slightly below average grade in this category. In calculating our short-term care scores, we look at the nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. This score is frequently a fair assessment of a facility's rehabilitation services. One reason for this facility's strong score in this category is that it provides more care with registered nurses to its residents than the average nursing home. The last measure we assessed in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home, which is below average.

Historical

This nursing home's weakest category was long-term care, which is the last category we looked at. For this category, we gave this facility a grade of just D. If you are seeking anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care ratings. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Fortunately, this facility provided the vaccine to 99.27007 percent of its residents, which is an above average figure. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
