Historical

While we gave this nursing home a weak overall rating, we gave it a fairly respectable score in the area of inspections, where we gave it a B-. This was quite a bit better than its other categories. Inspection grades are based on several items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key item to look for on these reports. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to patient safety. While this place had some deficiencies on its report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Historical

We also ended up giving this facility a fairly respectable grade in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B-. Our nursing grade is primarily associated with a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides an impressive 4 hours of nursing care per patient per day. Lastly, our nursing grade also includes relevant quality-based measures. While this place excelled in terms of quantity of nursing hours, it fell short in certain metrics that focused on quality. This place's nursing rating was pulled down by its weak performance in the area of minimizing pressure ulcers. We found that 12.1 percent of this nursing home's residents experienced pressure ulcers. Since some pressure ulcers could be avoided with good nursing protocols, we reduce a nursing home's nursing grade when we find this kind of frequency of pressure ulcers.

Historical

This nursing home was awarded its next highest category grade in the area of long-term care. We awarded this facility a B- in this category, which is a reasonably acceptable score. In the category of long-term care, we weigh the amount of care offered by a nursing home, rather than more healthcare-oriented services. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. We were optimistic to discover that this nursing home vaccinates 98.93778 percent of its residents for pneumonia. The last statistic we assessed was the facility's hospitalization rate. Here we found that this place had 3.27 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. While this figure is quite a bit higher than the national average, this statistic may be skewed for some nursing homes based on the preexisting medical conditions of patients.

Historical

Switching gears to the next category, we gave this nursing home a grade of D in short-term care. This was the facility's worst category rating. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we look at the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. This grade is typically a solid assessment of the nursing home's rehabilitation. In this nursing home's case, we found that it provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The last measure we considered 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 30.2 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar statistics sunk this nursing home's short-term care score.
