Historical

While this nursing home earned a decent overall grade, its inspections score is notably more impressive than its overall score. Due to a strong government inspection report this year, it received a strong score in that area with a grade of B+. Our inspection scores are based on many pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that score well in this category tend to have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This nursing home was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to create an immediate threat to resident safety or health. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.

Additionally, we also wanted to note that this facility was awarded favorable short-term care marks in this assessment. We gave them one of our more impressive scores in this category, with a grade of B+. This turned out to be the nursing home's second highest score. Our short-term care grades are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of skilled nursing services. This means a vast spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, we weren't able to locate information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The final measure we assessed in this area is the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

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 B-. Nursing scores are heavily correlated with nurse staffing levels. This facility averages just 0 hours of nursing care per patient per day, which is well below average. Lastly, our nursing ratings also consider some quality-focused metrics. We look at the percent of residents who suffered pressure ulcers and major falls. These datapoints are decent indicators of the quality of nursing care, since better care can reduce these issues.

Historical

The final area we graded was long-term care. We gave it an abysmal F in this category, which is a rock bottom grade. This is obviously a major disappointment. Nursing homes that do not fare well in long-term care typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine personal care we assessed. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to a relatively low 86.79245 percent of its patients, which is not a very encouraging sign. Finally, we looked at the nursing home's number of hospitalizations. We found that this nursing home had 2.12 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, this figure is also a cause for concern.
