Historical

This nursing home really excelled in the area of short-term care, where it earned an A-. Few facilities fared better in this category. If it wasn't for this category, this nursing home's overall grade would have been much worse. In computing our short-term care ratings, we look at the nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. This category is considered to be a fair measure of the nursing home's rehabilitation services. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this facility submitted information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. The last datapoint we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to return home from the nursing home. This proved to be more of a strength for this facility. It performed as well as just about any nursing home in Missouri with 63 percent of its residents returning home. With most facilities, less than half of their short-stay residents ever return home.

The next category we analyzed was long-term care. It received an F in this area, which is a bottom of the barrel score. This is certainly a major concern. Long-term care ratings 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. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. Candidly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility vaccinated 78.37838 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which happens to be several points below the national average. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
