Historical

Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a B- for our inspections rating. In fact, the facility received very impressive inspection report this year. Our inspection grades account for a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. 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. Finally, CMS flagged this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. This is not what you want to see. We advise you to direct your search elsewhere.

Historical

One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing score. This proved to be its second best category grade. In that category, we gave this facility an B-. There are a host of datapoints included in this category. Many of these factors relate to the quantity of nurse staffing. Based on the CMS data, this nursing home offers 3.8 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed a few nursing quality measures and this facility excelled in some of these subcategories. With fewer than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it fared well in this statistic. This is usually an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as employing a protocol of moving a resident even once per day.

Historical

We were also surprised to learn that this facility received a reasonably solid long-term care score in our assessment. We awarded it a grade of B- in that area. In computing our long-term care grades, we assess the personal care offered to a facility's residents. One of the statistics we considered after nursing hours is vaccinations. Fortunately, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. Lastly, we looked at the nursing home's number of hospitalizations. While it had 2.28 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted metric was not too bad.

Historical

The next area we rated is short-term care, in which this nursing home was given a bottom of the barrel grade in this category as well. Unfortunately, we gave it an F for this category, which is definitely a major concern. Short-term care grades are meaningful for prospective residents in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires additional highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a wide scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Based on its weak score in this area, we were not shocked to learn this place provides significantly fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 24.5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
