Historical

This facility's best category grade came in the area of short-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility a B. Our short-term care grades are vital for patients needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing services. This means a wide range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. This nursing home elevated its grade in this category by offering more care from registered nurses to its residents than the average facility. The last metric we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that it was respectable in this area with 49 percent of its patients returning home.

This facility's inspection grade exceeded its overall grade as well. We awarded them one of our better grades in that category, with a B. Inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Historical

This nursing home was given its next best category grade in the area of long-term care. We gave this nursing home a B- in this area, which is a decent grade. Long-term care ratings are crucial for patients needing personal care. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. We were disappointed to learn that this facility vaccinated only 88.40125 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Lastly, we looked at its number of hospitalizations. This place did not excel here either, with 2.8 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. While this figure is quite a bit higher than the national average, this number may be skewed for some facilities due to the preexisting medical conditions of residents.

Historical

The last category we rated was nursing. For this category, we gave this facility a B-. Our nursing grade looks at the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We consider both the levels of skill of the nurses and the quantity of hours spent with residents. This nursing home provides 3.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Although this place excelled in terms of quantity of nursing hours, it lagged a bit in some of the statistics that related to quality. This place's nursing score was pulled down by its weak performance in the area of minimizing pressure ulcers. We found that 13.3 percent of this facility's residents were suffering from pressure ulcers.
