Historical

To go along with its relatively modest overall score, we gave this nursing home an A+ for our inspections rating. This grade is far more impressive than its overall grade. These inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This indicates that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to be an imminent risk to patient safety or health. A couple of minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Historical

This facility was given its next most favorable category grade in the category of long-term care. We awarded this facility a B- in this area, which is an acceptable score. Long-term care ratings are based in part on the nursing home's amount of care. This means a vast spectrum of personal care services, ranging from assistance with activities of daily living to routine medical services. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is higher than the majority of nursing homes. This nursing home keeps its patients out of the hospital. It had just 1.59 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days.

Historical

This facilities next most favorable category is short-term care. We awarded it a grade of C in this category. This is essentially a middle of the pack grade in this area. In our short-term care category, we strive to forge a valuable barometer for rehabilitation. In doing so, we analyze a facility's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational 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 measure we looked at in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that it was above average in this area with 49.7 percent of its residents returning home.

Historical

The next area we looked at was nursing, which is this nursing home's weakest category. Unfortunately, we gave it a lowly F for this area, which is obviously a major disappointment. The nursing rating includes many subcategories, many of which are tied to quantities of nurse staffing. This place averaged just 3.2 hours of nursing care per resident daily. To go along with its subpar totals in the area of nursing hours per patient, this place also didn't fare as well in the quality-based measures we looked at in determining our nursing ratings. We looked at the percent of patients sustaining pressure ulcers and major falls. This place had more falls and pressure ulcers than the average facility. This may be a bad sign when you consider that many bed sores and falls are preventable with better nursing care. Unfortunately, these statistics hurt this nursing home's nursing grade quite a bit.
