Historical

Although we didn't rate this nursing home favorably overall, we gave it an excellent score in the area of short-term care, where it earned an A-. In our short-term care score, we attempt to craft a sound measure for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we assess the nursing home's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. One of this nursing home's strengths is registered nurse hours. We found that it offers more care from registered nurses to its residents than most facilities. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients that returned home from this nursing home. This place fared as well as just about any nursing home in the nation with 64.6 percent of its patients returning home.

One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing rating. This turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we gave this nursing home an C. We analyzed the levels of nurses employed by the facility, in addition to the number of hours those nurses spent with patients, in computing our rating in this area. This facility provided just 3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This figure is significantly below average. Lastly, our nursing grades also consider quality-based assessments, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this place actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place. Some falls can be avoided if a nursing home supplies enough nurses to assist its residents.

Historical

This facility earned mediocre inspections in recent years. We gave them a grade of C in this category. Our inspection grades are tied to items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these reports. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to the well being of residents. This nursing home had 9 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were category G through L deficiencies. This tells you that this facility avoided the more significant classes of deficiencies. Finally, we do need to note that this nursing home was assessed some government fines in recent years. We were relieved to find that these were not on the high end as government fines go. Nevertheless, this isn't what we hoped to find.

Historical

Moving on to our final area, this nursing home really did not perform well here either. Due to an abysmal grade of F in long-term care, this is just about as terrible as it gets. Long-term care scores in this range generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We discovered that this nursing home provided the vaccine to only 23.770493 percent of its patients, which is somewhat alarming. To our surprise, this place was not as bad as we expected at keeping its residents out of the hospital. While it had 2.09 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, its risk adjusted score was not bad since it had more complicated patients.
