Historical

While this nursing home's overall score was not a highlight, it actually excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it an A for that area, which is one of our best scores. Our inspection grades are tied to several datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these reports. You should especially avoid nursing homes with severe deficiencies associated with risks to resident well being. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even with this deficiency, this was still a relatively positive report.

Historical

This nursing home's second most favorable category was long-term care. We gave it a C in this area. This is essentially a middle of the pack grade in this category. Our long-term care ratings are more important for those requiring more conventional services associated with personal care. After assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 99.386505 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is more than the vast majority of nursing homes. This nursing home also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 1.19 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a much lower hospitalization rate than the average nursing home.

Historical

Turning to the area of nursing care, this facility received a grade of just D in this category. Our nursing rating looks at the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We consider both the levels of licensure of the nurses as well as the number of hours spent with patients. This facility provided just 3.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also looked at a few quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. This nursing home was above average in two of the major areas we focus on, with solid scores for minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Historical

The final area we rated is short-term care. We gave it a lowly F for this area, which is a poor score. In the area of short-term care, we endeavor to qualify indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Based on its score in this category, we were not stunned to find that this facility is well below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the metrics we looked at. Honestly, this was about what we expected to find. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 29.4 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, about half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
