Historical

While we were not high on this nursing home's overall grade, it actually received a very impressive inspection report this year. In fact, it received an excellent inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our best scores in that category with an A+. Inspection grades weigh a host of factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid nursing homes with a list of deficiencies flagged. We weren't able to locate deficiency counts for this nursing home. Without the deficiency data for this facility, it is a challenge to really evaluate the place in the inspections category.

This nursing home's second best area is long-term care. We gave it a B- in this area. This is basically a slightly below average score in this area. Long-term care grades are based in part on the facility's quantity of nursing care. This includes a broad range of personal care services, ranging from assistance with activities of daily living to routine healthcare services. After assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 99.10314 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is more than the majority of nursing homes. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 1.04 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than many nursing homes.

Historical

This facility ended up receiving rock bottom score in our nursing category. It received an F in this category. We looked at the levels of nurses at the nursing home, as well as the quantity of hours those nurses spent with patients, in determining our score in this area. This nursing home provides 3.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day, which is slightly below the national average. To pair with its low totals in the area of nursing hours per resident, this facility also did not fare as well in the quality-based measures we looked at in computing our nursing grades. We looked at the percentage of residents experiencing pressure ulcers and major falls. This nursing home had more falls and pressure ulcers than the average nursing home. This may be a bad sign when you consider that many bed sores and falls are believed to be preventable with better nursing care. These scores hurt this facility's nursing grade quite a bit.

Historical

Switching gears to our next area, this nursing home didn't perform well in this category either. With a poor grade of F in short-term care, this is about as terrible as it gets. Short-term care grades are often used to gauge a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to offer good rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must offer better levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The last item we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 24.4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar statistics was damning for this nursing home's short-term care score.
