Historical

This nursing home received a quality overall score as described above, but we especially wanted to point out its excellent government inspections in recent years. We gave it an A+ in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some are relatively insignificant. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This means CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Historical

This nursing home was given high scores in the area of long-term care as well. As a result, we awarded it one of our highest scores in that area with a score of A-. Nursing homes that do well in this category typically are well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 97.149124 percent of its patients, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia sadly can be a life threatening ailment for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a facility does not leave this to chance. Finally, we looked at the facility's number of hospitalizations. Here we found that this nursing home had 2.33 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days.

Historical

We also awarded this nursing home a middle of the pack score in the category of short-term care, where we gave it a B-. Our short-term care grade is generally used to judge a facility's performance with rehabilitation In order to have highly scored rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to offer better levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Fortunately, this nursing home offers both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities offer both. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This was a much stronger area for this facility. This place outperformed most facilities in this metric with 57.8 percent of its patients returning home.

Historical

Switching gears to our fourth category, we gave this facility a D in our nursing category. This was the nursing home's least impressive category rating. Naturally, this category pulled down the facility's overall profile to some degree. When calculating a nursing home's nursing grade, we consider the amount of time nurses are caring for patients as well as the level of skill of the nurses. This nursing home averages 3.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day, which is below the national average. Although this facility didn't excel in the area of nursing hours, it surprised us in a few of the quality-based assessments in the nursing category, such as avoiding major falls. This place was better than average in this metric, which is one redeeming quality we found in this category.
