Although we did not rate this facility favorably overall, we want to draw your attention to its excellent inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A in this category. Our inspection grades are tied to several pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these inspections. You should especially avoid facilities with severe deficiencies associated with risks to resident well being. This place was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the government inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to resident safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

In addition, we also wanted to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received impressive long-term care marks this year. We gave them one of our higher grades in this category, with a grade of B. This turned out to be the nursing home's second highest score. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it typically means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 98.66071 percent of its residents, which is very impressive. Pneumonia sadly is often a life or death illness for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a facility doesn't leave this to chance. The last datapoint we assessed is its hospitalization rate. We found that this place had 1.88 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is close to average in this area.

Turning to the area of nursing care, this facility received a grade of just D in this category. In calculating a nursing home's nursing rating, we weigh the amount of time nurses spend with patients as well as the skill levels of the nurses. Quantity of nursing care does not appear to be the problem here. Based on the data, it looks like this place provides an above average 4.3 hours per resident daily. This is more nursing care than most nursing homes offer. Despite performing well in terms of nursing hours, this place had poor scores in some of the quality-based measures we looked at in determining our nursing grades. We looked at the percent of patients sustaining pressure ulcers and we were very disappointed. This facility was at roughly 150 percent of the national average in this statistic. This is likely a bad sign when you consider that many bed sores are believed to be preventable with better nursing care. This statistic helped pull down this facility's nursing grade quite a bit.

Historical

The final category we scored was short-term care. This nursing home received a bottom of the barrel grade of F in this category. Short-term care grades are critical for individuals needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a vast spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. In this nursing home's case, we found that it offers far less registered nurse hours per patient than the average nursing home. Given its score in this category, this did not surprise us. The final metric we considered in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 23.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. This statistic was damning for this facility's short-term care grade.
