Historical

While this nursing home's overall grade was not a highlight, it actually excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it an A for that area, which is one of our best scores. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some are quite minor. This facility was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to cause an imminent risk to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Historical

This nursing home excelled in our nursing category, where it received a grade of D. Nursing grades are primarily associated with the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 3.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day, which is slightly below the national average. In addition to receiving below average scores for total nursing hours, this facility was less impressive in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at in determining our nursing grades. We looked at the percentage of residents experiencing pressure ulcers and found this nursing home was at roughly 150 percent of the national average in this statistic. This is likely a bad sign when you consider that so many bed sores are preventable with better nursing care. Unfortunately, this statistic pulled down this facility's nursing rating significantly.

Historical

Moving on to the category of short-term care, this nursing home was given just a D in this area. Short-term care ratings are based on the facility's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a wide scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Not surprisingly based on its score in this area, this nursing home was subpar in one of the two key staffing areas we looked at. It offered substantially fewer registered nurse hours per patient than most other facilities. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents that eventually returned home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well in this area. In fact, we found that just 34.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.

Historical

The final category we analyzed is long-term care. This facility received a poor grade of F in this area. For patients seeking a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are very important. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Fortunately, this facility provided the vaccine to 98.82006 percent of its residents, which is a very respectable percentage. To our surprise, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. While it had 2.13 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted metric was not bad due to it having more complex patients.
