Historical

Although we did not have many favorable things to say about this facility's overall grade, it earned a somewhat respectable government inspection report this year. As a result, it received a decent score in that category with a B-. Inspection ratings weigh several factors found on a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This place was assessed 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies to create an immediate threat to patient safety or health. Finally, CMS flagged this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. This is not what you want to see. We advise you to direct your search elsewhere.

Historical

The second best area we gave this nursing home in any category came in the area of short-term care, where we awarded it a grade of B-. Our short-term care grades are thought to be most critical for patients needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. In this place's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the typical facility. The last item we assessed in this area is the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. This facility performed better in this statistic. We found that it fared better than most nursing homes in this area with 55.3 percent of its residents returning home.

Historical

This facility was given its next highest category score in the category of long-term care. We awarded this nursing home a grade of C in this area, which is a respectable grade. In the area of long-term care, we focus on the quantity of services offered by a nursing home, rather than more healthcare-oriented services. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to a relatively low 75.252525 percent of its patients, which is a bit of a concern. Finally, we looked at its number of hospitalizations. This facility didn't excel here either, with 3.58 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. While this figure is somewhat concerning, this statistic can be skewed for some nursing homes due to the medical complexity of residents.

Historical

Turning to our fourth category, this facility received an acceptable nursing grade of C. There are several subcategories included in this category. Most of these factors are tied to staffing levels. This nursing home provides 3.2 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a much lower figure than we were hoping for. Lastly, our nursing scores also factor in quality-based assessments, such as preventing major falls. While this facility did not have as many nursing hours per resident as many of the other facilities we assessed, it was still better than average in the area of avoiding falls. This is generally a good indicator of how carefully a facility's nursing staff is tending to its residents. Major falls can frequently be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
