Historical

Although this place's overall grade was not a highlight, it did receive a very good score in the category of inspections. In fact, we gave it a B for that category, which is one of our better grades. Our inspection scores account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid places with a list of deficiencies flagged. This facility received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This indicates that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Historical

One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility an C. Our nursing grade is primarily tied to the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides an impressive 4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, our nursing rating also includes some relevant quality-based metrics. While this nursing home excelled in terms of quantity of nursing hours, it lagged a bit in certain statistics that related to quality. This place's nursing score was hurt by its weak performance in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers. In fact, we found that 16.1 percent of this nursing home's residents were suffering from pressure ulcers. Since some pressure ulcers can be avoided with good nursing protocols, we reduce a nursing home's nursing rating when we see this kind of prevalence of pressure ulcers.

Historical

This facility received its third most favorable category score in the area of short-term care. We awarded this facility a grade of C in this area, which is a reasonably acceptable grade. Our short-term care ratings are arguably most critical for residents requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually mandates additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not only nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. We were surprised to find that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. It supplied fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Historical

The final category we analyzed was long-term care, was this facility's least impressive category. We gave this facility a D in that area. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in this category may not provide the kind of consistent 24/7 care that some other facilities offer. This facility's vaccination records weren't as impressive as its nursing hours data. This facility gave the pneumonia vaccine to just 67.772514 percent of its patients. We'd like to see some improvement herein this statistic next year. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This was its best feature in this category.
