Historical

While we were not high on this facility overall, we gave it a grade of A- for our nursing rating. This is far better than its overall score. There are a host of datapoints within this area. Most of the subcategories relate to staffing levels. This particular nursing home provided 4 hours of nursing care per resident per day, which was above the national average. Finally, this facility also performed very well in most of the quality-based metrics we looked at. It had a low number of residents sustaining major falls and pressure ulcers.

Historical

One of this nursing home's better category scores was in the area of long-term care. This proved to be its second most respectable category. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-. Our long-term care grade is often used to judge a nursing home's performance as a traditional convalescent home, as opposed to focusing on the skilled nursing services offered by a skilled nursing facility. After considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination statistics. We were optimistic to find that this facility vaccinated 98.18594 percent of its residents for pneumonia. This facility keeps its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 1.04 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a much better hospitalization rate than most nursing homes.

Historical

Sadly, this facility received a grade of just D in our inspection category. This is well below average grade. Our inspection grades weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. This particular facility was assessed 8 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they caused a threat to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility also received 4 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.

Historical

The final category we rated was short-term care, which proved to be this facility's weakest category. We gave this facility a D in that category. Short-term care grades are generally used to gauge a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. To offer good rehabilitation services, facilities generally must provide better levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. With a grade this poor for this category, we weren't shocked to discover that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing figures we assess. It offered significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other facilities. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. This was not a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 25.2 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, around half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
