Historical

While this facility's overall grade was not bad, it really fared well in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A+ for that category, which is one of our best scores. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that the inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to patient health or safety. We should point out that deficiency-free inspections are rare in the industry.

We also awarded this facility a positive score in long-term care. This nursing home received a grade of B+ in this category, which happens to be one of our more impressive grades. Facilities that excel in long-term care typically provide patients with more supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. After considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 96.039604 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents healthy. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. While it had 2.14 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, its risk adjusted score was better than most nursing homes since it had some more complex patients.

We also gave this nursing home a decent score in the category of nursing care, with a grade of B-. Nursing grades are largely tied to a nursing home's nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 3.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based measures, such as preventing major falls. This place performed admirably in this subcategory.

Historical

This facility's worst category is short-term care, which is the final area we assessed. In this category, we gave this facility a D. In forming our short-term care ratings, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The goal is to devise a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. In this nursing home's case, we found that it provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients that who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 40.2 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
