To go along with its decent overall score, we awarded this nursing home an A+ for our nursing rating. This score is far more impressive than the facility's overall grade. Our nursing rating focuses on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We factor in both the levels of skill of those nurses and the amount of time spent with patients. This facility boasts an impressive 5.9 hours of nursing care per patient per day, of which more than one hour of these were provided by registered nurses. This is among the most highly skilled levels of nurses. Lastly, this facility appears to be above average in several of the major quality-based metrics we looked at in this area. It performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Historical

This facility also performed well in the category of short-term care, where we awarded it a grade of A-. Few nursing homes fared more favorably in this category. Our short-term care ratings are crucial for people needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires more skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a wide range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. One of this nursing home's strengths is that it offers more than an hour of care per day from registered nurses per resident. This is really the gold standard for this metric, as it's about 50% higher than a typical facility's level of registered nurse staffing. The last metric we assessed in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return 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 B- 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. This facility's vaccination statistics weren't as favorable as its nursing hours. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to just 90.09901 percent of its residents. We would love to see some improvement herein this statistic in the future. Fortunately, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.39 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

The final category we assessed was inspections. This facility did not receive favorable government inspections in recent years. In fact, we gave it an F in this category. This pulled down this nursing home's overall grade significantly. For nursing homes with bad inspection grades, you should scrutinize any severe deficiencies found on their recent inspection reports. This particular facility had 6 deficiencies by CMS. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they created a threat to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility also received 4 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.
