Historical

To pair with its relatively modest overall score, we gave this facility an A+ for its inspection grade. This grade is far better than the facility's overall grade. Our inspection scores account for a host of factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this area generally have very few of these severe deficiencies. This facility was assessed 8 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe. This indicates that CMS did not deem any of these deficiencies to create an immediate risk to patient health or safety. A couple minor dings aren't necessarily something to panic about.

Historical

This facility also was given an impressive short-term care grade. As a matter of fact, we awarded them a B in this category, which happens to be one of our better. In determining our short-term care grades, we assess the facility's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other licensed professionals. This rating is more often than not a meaningful measure of the facility's rehabilitation services. One reason for this facility's strong score in this category is that it provides more care with registered nurses to its residents than the average nursing home. The last item we looked at in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Historical

One of this facility's better category grades was in the area of nursing care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of C. The nursing grade is based on quite a few factors, however, the paramount one is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home averages just 2.9 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, which is well below average. Finally, nursing grades also consider quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this facility actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is often a good indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls could be avoided if a nursing home provides enough nurses to assist its patients.

Historical

The next area we rated is long-term care, which proved to be this nursing home's least impressive category. We gave this facility a grade of D in this category. Naturally, this score pulled down the nursing home's overall profile to a certain degree. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. After we finished assessing the volume of nursing care, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. We were pleased to learn that this facility vaccinates 97.01492 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Unfortunately, this nursing home's hospitalization rate was far less favorable. Here we found that this place had 2.69 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an alarming rate.
