Historical

This place fared well in the area of long-term care. We awarded it a grade of A- for that area. This helped its overall profile. Nursing homes that receive this kind of grade in this category tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure residents are kept in good health. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 98.4326 percent of its patients, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia is often a life threatening health condition for nursing home patients so we like it when a facility does not take any chances. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Historical

In addition, this nursing home also excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned an A-. Few nursing homes performed as well in this area. Inspection grades are tied to several pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspections. Facilities that receive favorable grades in this area have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This nursing home was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered severe. This means that the government inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to be an immediate threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

Historical

Another strength of this facility is its favorable grade in nursing. We gave them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of D. Nursing scores are mostly based on a nursing home's nurse staffing. With a meager 3.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day, this facility's nurse staffing levels were significantly below the national average. Lastly, we also looked at a few quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This nursing home was above average in two of the statistics we considered, with good scores for minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. These metrics are generally reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care available.

Historical

The final area we analyzed was short-term care, which is a low point for this nursing home. We awarded this facility a grade of D for our short-term care category. Short-term care grades are meaningful for prospective residents seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a broad range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The last metric we assessed in this area is the number of patients that who were able to eventually return home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 0 percent of its patients returning home.
