Historical

While this nursing home's overall grade was decent, it really excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively minor. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. A couple of minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.

Historical

This facility's second best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. Our nursing rating is mostly based on a nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home averages just 3.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. While this nursing home ranked poorly in terms of the quantity of nursing care offered, it performed admirably in a few of our quality measures. It was above average in two of the metrics we look at, with positive reviews for minimizing its patients' pressure ulcers and major falls. These areas are measures of the quality of nursing care offered since many bed sores and falls can be avoided.

Historical

This nursing home was awarded its third highest category score in the area of short-term care. We awarded this facility a C in this area, which is a reasonably acceptable grade. Our short-term care scores are based in part on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a broad range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. We were pleased to find that this nursing home employs both registered nurses and physical therapists. The same can't be said for all nursing homes. The final datapoint we assessed in this category is the number of residents who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. It performed respectably with 45.7 percent of its residents returning home.

Historical

This nursing home's weakest category was long-term care, which is the final area we assessed. In this area, we awarded this facility a grade of D. For residents in need of a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. On top of considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 99.460915 percent of its patients, which is more than the vast majority of nursing homes. Unfortunately, this place's hospitalization rate was far less favorable. We found that this facility had 2.07 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an alarming rate.

Appropriately Uses Anti-Psychotic Medication

This metric is a measure of the percentage of long-term patients which are administered antipsychotic drugs.

Nevertheless, some nursing homes may need to rely on these medications due to having more residents suffering from Alzheimer's or other dementias.
