Historical

This facility earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its nearly flawless health inspections in recent years. We gave them an A+ in this category. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Based on this, we had positive view of this nursing home's inspections.

Additionally, we gave this nursing home a B in our long-term care category. This is one of our better scores. Nursing homes that excel in long-term care typically are well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to patients. Once we concluded our assessment of the amount of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 99.615875 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia tragically can be a life threatening illness for nursing home residents so we prefer when a facility does not leave this to chance. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1.32 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes.

Historical

This nursing home's next best category was short-term care. We gave it a grade of C in this area. This is basically a slightly below average score in this category. Our short-term care ratings are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a broad scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, in addition to other variations 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 last statistic we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. It was above average in this metric with 54.9 percent of its residents returning home.

Historical

This nursing home's weakest category was nursing, which is the last category we assessed. We gave it a lowly F in this area. In spite of several solid grades in other areas, this grade is nevertheless concerning so we felt obligated to point it out. Our nursing grade assesses quite a few components, but the primary consideration is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility averaged a meager 3.2 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is well below average. This place also had terrible marks in some of the quality-based measures to pair with its weak nursing hour totals. We looked at the percentage of residents sustaining pressure ulcers and we were disappointed. This place was at approximately 150 percent of the national average in this metric. This is a bad sign in light of the fact that so many bed sores are preventable with better nursing care. This metric helped pull down this nursing home's nursing score quite a bit.
