Historical

Although we didn't give this nursing home a good overall grade, we did give it a strong grade in the category of inspections, where it received a grade of B+. Our inspection ratings weigh a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid places with a bunch of deficiencies flagged. This place received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This means that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate risk to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Historical

We also want to point out that this facility received a decent grade in our nursing category. We awarded it a grade of C in the area. Nursing scores are largely tied to the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. Based on the CMS data, this nursing home offers 3.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as minimizing major falls. This place performed admirably in this metric.

Historical

This facility's next highest area was its long-term care grade, where it was given a C. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is higher than the average nursing home. The last datapoint we assessed was the nursing home's hospitalization rate. Here we found that this nursing home had 3.43 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. While this figure is somewhat concerning, this number can be skewed for some nursing homes due to the preexisting medical conditions of residents.

Historical

This nursing home's weakest category is short-term care, which is the last area we scored. In this area, we gave this facility a grade of D. In crafting our short-term care ratings, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our purpose is to create a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. With a grade in this range for this category, we weren't shocked to discover that this facility was well below average in several staffing metrics we focus on. In fact, it offered substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who ultimately returned home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 23.4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
