Historical

In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this facility also excelled in the category of inspections, where it received a grade of A-. Few facilities performed better in this category. Our inspection grades are based on items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that score well in this category typically have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This place received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered severe. This indicates that the inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. In that area, we awarded this facility an B-. We analyzed the qualifications of nurses working for the facility, in addition to the quantity of hours the nurses were with residents, in computing our score in this area. This particular nursing home provided 3.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Even though this nursing home excelled in terms of quantity of nursing hours, it fell short in certain metrics that focused on quality. This facility's nursing grade was hurt by its subpar performance in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers. We found that 16.2 percent of this nursing home's residents experienced pressure ulcers.

The third category we graded is short-term care. In that area, we gave this nursing home a B-. In computing our short-term care ratings, we analyze a nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other types of therapists. This rating is often a meaningful assessment of a facility's rehabilitation. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually well below average.

Historical

This nursing home's worst category was long-term care, which is the last area we scored. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F for this area. Despite several decent scores in other areas, this score is still of a concern so we wanted to make sure you are aware. When facilities receive this kind of grade in this category it is often a bad sign for patient care and it may indicate that the facility is not as well-staffed. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 89.58333 percent of its residents. This is quite a bit below what we were hoping for. Lastly, we looked at the nursing home's number of hospitalizations. Here we found that this place fared poorly with 3.36 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, this statistic is nearly double the national average.
