Historical

In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this place also excelled in the category of inspections, where it received an A-. Few facilities performed better in this area. Inspection scores are tied to datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that receive favorable grades in this area tend to have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. While this place had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.

Historical

One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. In that category, we gave this nursing home an B-. There are a number of datapoints included in this area. Most of these criteria relate to levels of nurse staffing. Based on the CMS data, this nursing home offers 3.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, our nursing grades also factor in some quality-focused statistics. Specifically, we look at the percent of residents who sustained pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these metrics as predictive indicators of the quality of nursing care, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

Historical

This nursing home's next most favorable category is long-term care. We gave it a C in this area. This is basically a middle of the pack grade in this area. Our long-term care grade focuses on a facility's assistance with daily living instead of the highly skilled nursing or medical services that are critical to a skilled nursing facility. One of the datapoints we considered on top of nurse's aid hours was vaccines. Candidly, we were a bit alarmed this facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to a relatively low 86.141304 percent of its residents. Fortunately, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Historical

This facility's worst category was short-term care, which is the final category we looked at. In this area, we awarded this facility a grade of just D. In determining these short-term care scores, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The goal is to formulate a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. With a grade of this caliber in this area, we weren't shocked to find that this place was well below average in the two key staffing metrics we focus on. The facility supplied significantly fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most other nursing homes. The last statistic we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 42 percent of its residents returning home.
