Historical

To pair with its relatively modest overall score, we gave this facility an A- for our inspections rating. This is far more impressive than the facility's overall grade. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

Historical

Another one of this facility's higher category scores came in the area of long-term care. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a B+. It actually fared better than most facilities in this category. Long-term care grades in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. After considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 97.415504 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is more than the average nursing home. The last statistic we assessed was its hospitalization rate. Here we found that this nursing home had 2 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is middle of the pack in this area.

Historical

The third area we looked at is short-term care, where this facility was given a grade of C in this category. Our short-term care grades are based on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a broad spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other types of therapy. We were pleased to find that this nursing home employs both registered nurses and physical therapists. The same can't be said for all nursing homes. The final measure we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents that eventually returned home from the facility. We found that just 43.7 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.

Historical

The next category we scored is nursing, which ended up being this facility's weakest area. It received an F in this area, which is clearly very concerning. We assessed the skill-level of nurses working for the nursing home, as well as the quantity of time the nurses were with patients, in calculating our grade in this area. This particular nursing home provided 3.8 hours of nursing care per resident per day, which is below average. To go along with its low totals in the area of nursing hours per resident, this place also didn't perform as well in the quality-based measures we looked at in computing our nursing ratings. We looked at the percent of patients sustaining major falls and pressure ulcers. This place had more falls and pressure ulcers than the average facility. This may be a bad sign when you consider that many bed sores and falls are preventable with better nursing care. Unfortunately, these statistics hurt this facility's nursing grade quite a bit.
