Historical

This nursing home earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its nearly flawless inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A- in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively minor. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Based on this, we still had a generally positive view of this facility's inspections.

Historical

Another one of this facility's higher category grades came in the area of short-term care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B+. With our short-term care rating, we strive to forge a meaningful gauge for rehabilitation. In doing so, we analyze a facility's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. This nursing home provides more services with physical therapists and registered nurses than most nursing homes we looked at. This is usually a favorable sign. The last datapoint we assessed in this area is the number of patients that were able to return home from the facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home rather than remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Historical

This nursing home's nursing grade appears to be one of its better features. The facility received a grade of B- in this category. The nursing score analyzes many datapoints, however, the primary one is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. Based on the CMS data, this nursing home offers 3.8 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Even though this nursing home excelled in terms of quantity of nursing hours, it lagged a bit in certain metrics that focused on quality. This facility's nursing grade was hurt by its subpar performance in the area of minimizing pressure ulcers. In fact, we found that 30 percent of this facility's patients experienced pressure ulcers.

Historical

This facility's least impressive category is long-term care, which is the final category we analyzed. We gave it a lowly F in this category. Despite a few acceptable scores in other categories, this score is still of a concern so we wanted to draw your attention to it. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in this category likely don't provide the kind of consistent around the clock care that some other facilities provide. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination record. Candidly, we were a bit concerned this nursing home vaccinated 67.30769 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which happens to be several points below what we were hoping for. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This was its best score in this category.
