Historical

Although we did not rate this nursing home well overall, we want to point out its decent health inspections in recent years. We gave it a relatively respectable score of B- in that category. Inspection scores weigh a host of factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the number 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 cited this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. Hopefully, its performance improves in the future, but until then we simply can't recommend this facility.

Historical

We also want to point out that this facility received a decent grade in our nursing category. We awarded it a grade of B- in the area. Nursing ratings are largely tied to a facility's level of nurse staffing. According to CMS records, this nursing home averaged 4.6 hours of nursing care per resident daily. Keep in mind that when we calculate our nursing ratings, we add more weight to hours performed by nurses with a higher level of skill. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in some quality-focused statistics. Specifically, we look at the percent of residents who sustained pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these statistics as reliable measures of the quality of nursing care, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

Historical

This nursing home's third most favorable area is short-term care. We awarded it a grade of B- in this area. This is basically a middle of the road score in this category. Short-term care grades are generally used to judge a nursing home's rehabilitation services In order to provide highly graded rehabilitation services, facilities generally must provide better levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually well below average.

Historical

The last category we analyzed is long-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. In determining our long-term care scores, we assess the personal care received by a facility's patients. After we finished assessing the amount of care provided by nurses, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. We were optimistic to discover that this facility vaccinates 98.50746 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1.16 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home.
