The main reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it earned an excellent inspection grade. Its inspection score was far better than its overall score. In our inspections category, we gave this facility an A. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports.

Historical

The third best area we awarded this facility in any area came in the area of short-term care, where we awarded it a B-. Our short-term care grades are considered to be most meaningful for patients needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally utilizes more skilled nursing services. This includes not only nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we were not able to locate information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last statistic we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents that eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 37.8 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

The final category we graded was long-term care. We gave this nursing home a D for long-term care, rendering this the facility's worst area. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids, as well as the levels of routine medical care available. After we finished looking at the quantity of nursing care, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. Frankly, we were a bit alarmed this facility vaccinated a relatively low 72.455086 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Unfortunately, this nursing home's hospitalization rate was also a cause for concern. We found that this place had 2.27 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an alarming rate.
