Historical

While this nursing home's overall grade was not a highlight, it actually excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Our inspection scores are based on several datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key item to look for on these inspections. You should especially avoid facilities that have severe deficiencies associated with risks to resident well being. This place received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered severe. This tells you that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies to be an immediate risk to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Historical

The second best category we awarded this nursing home in any area came in the area of short-term care, where we awarded it a grade of C. Our short-term care grades are believed to be more important for patients needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally requires more highly-skilled nursing services. This means not only nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, this nursing home offers both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities offer both. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who ultimately returned home from this facility. We found that it fared better than most nursing homes in the nation with 49.3 percent of its patients returning home.

Historical

Unfortunately, this facility's next highest score is long-term care. As it turns out, with a D in this category, it still performed somewhat poorly. If you are looking for anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care grades. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 97.08029 percent of its residents. Lastly, we looked at the facility's number of hospitalizations. We found that this nursing home had 2.68 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, this figure is not nearly as favorable than its vaccination record.

Historical

This nursing home's least impressive area is nursing, which is the final area we scored. In this category, we gave this nursing home a grade of D. Our nursing score is mostly based on a facility's level of nurse staffing. This place averaged a meager 2.9 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. In addition to receiving below average marks for total nursing hours, this facility was a bit less impressive in some of the quality-based measures we looked at in determining our nursing ratings. We looked at the percent of patients suffering pressure ulcers and found this place was at approximately 1.5 times the national average in this statistic. This is a bad sign when you consider that many pressure ulcers are preventable with better nursing care. This statistic really pulled down this nursing home's nursing grade substantially.
