Our nursing rating is primarily tied to a nursing home's nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 3.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day.

Historical

This nursing home also was given a favorable grade in our short-term care category. We gave this nursing home a better than average grade of B in this area. In computing our short-term care grades, we size up the facility's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This rating is often a useful measure of a nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. Fortunately, this nursing home offers both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities offer both. The last item we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to return home from the nursing home. This place performed better than most facilities in this area with 51.9 percent of its patients returning home.

Historical

This facility's weakest area is long-term care, which is the final category we assessed. In this area, we awarded this facility a grade of just D. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it typically means the facility did not perform well in our quality measures relating to resident care. One of the data points we considered after nursing hours was vaccinations. Frankly, we were a bit alarmed this facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to a relatively low 90.19231 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this facility was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 1.43 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
