Historical

This nursing home excelled in the area of short-term care, with an A in this category. In the area of short-term care, we try to qualify measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We look at a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. This nursing home boosted its score in this category by offering more than 50% more physical therapy hours to its residents than the average facility. The final measure we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that it fared as well as just about any facility in Oklahoma in this area with 71.4 percent of its residents returning home.

In addition, this facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned an A-. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this area typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This nursing home was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered severe. This tells you that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to resident health or safety. A couple of minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Historical

This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of C. The nursing score includes several components, most of which are based on nursing hours. This nursing home provides 3.8 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also factored a few quality measures into our nursing grades. This nursing home was relatively weak in some of the datapoints we focus on, with subpar scores for minimizing its patients' major falls and pressure ulcers. These areas are typically reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care provided.

Historical

Switching gears to the final area, this facility didn't perform well. Due to an abysmal grade of F in long-term care, this is its poorest category grade. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in this category it typically means the facility did not perform well in our quality measures relating to patient care. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We were a bit alarmed this facility gave the vaccine to a relatively low 85.95041 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this nursing home wasn't as bad as we expected at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Although it had 1.96 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted metric was not bad since it had more complex patients.
