Historical

This facility's best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a B+. It outperformed most facilities in this area. The nursing grade includes a handful of factors, but the most important one is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This particular nursing home provided 3.9 hours of nursing care per resident per day, which was above the national average. Lastly, this facility appears to be above average in several of the major quality measures we assessed in this category. It performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

Historical

This nursing home also earned a strong inspection score. Inspection grades are based on the facility's recent health inspections. We awarded this facility a B in this category. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home was hit with 10 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to be an imminent risk to patient health or safety. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.

Historical

This nursing home's third best area was long-term care. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-. For prospective residents looking for a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are an important measure. After looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is better than the majority of nursing homes. Lastly, we looked at the nursing home's number of hospitalizations. Here we found that this facility had 6.32 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. While this figure is somewhat concerning, this number can be skewed for some nursing homes due to the medical complexity of residents.

Historical

Moving on to the last category, this nursing home received a decent short-term care score of C. Our short-term care ratings are believed to be most meaningful for patients in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes not just nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. One of this nursing home's strengths is physical therapy hours. We found that it offers more hours with physical therapists to its residents than most facilities. The last statistic we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 28.3 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.
