Historical

In addition to being a respectable facility overall, this place also excelled in the category of inspections, where it earned an A. Few facilities performed better in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite insignificant. This place was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the government inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies an imminent risk to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

Historical

This facility also received an impressive long-term care grade. In fact, we awarded them a grade of B+ in that area, which happens to be one of our more favorable scores. 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. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 88.03894 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which happens to be slightly lower than we expected but still a decent figure. Lastly, we looked at the facility's number of hospitalizations. Here we found that this place had 2.75 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days.

Historical

The third category we graded was short-term care. This nursing home's was given a poor short-term care score where it was given a lowly F. Short-term care scores are based on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a wide scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. Given its score in this category, we were not surprised to find that this facility was subpar in terms of its quantity of registered nurse hours provided to its patients. Frankly, this was about what we expected here. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents who eventually returned home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well in this area. In fact, we found that just 36.5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.

Historical

The next area we rated was nursing, which ended up being this facility's least impressive category. It received a lowly F for this category, which is certainly concerning. Our nursing rating is based on the facility's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of skill of those nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with residents. This place offered just 3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is not a very impressive figure. Unfortunately, this facility also had terrible marks in some of the quality-based measures to go along with its low nursing hours. We looked at the percent of patients suffering pressure ulcers and we were disappointed. This nursing home was at roughly 1.5 times the national average in this statistic.
