Historical

To go along with its decent overall grade, we gave this nursing home an A+ for our inspections rating. This is far more impressive than the facility's overall score. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Historical

We also awarded this facility an impressive score in long-term care. This facility received a grade of B+ in this category, which is one of our more favorable scores. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in long-term care it generally means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. On top of considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 98.00995 percent of its residents, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia sadly is often a life or death ailment for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a nursing home does not take any chances. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Historical

We also awarded this nursing home a respectable grade in the category of short-term care, with a C. In crafting our short-term care grades, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our objective is to create a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. This nursing home elevated its grade in this category by offering more care from registered nurses to its residents than the average facility. The final statistic we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 37.6 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.

Historical

The last area we assessed was nursing, which is this nursing home's least impressive area. We gave this facility a grade of D in that area. Sadly, this score hurt the nursing home's overall profile to some degree. Our nursing score is based on many factors, however, the most important consideration is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility provided 3.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is below the national average. To go along with its subpar totals in the area of nursing hours per patient, this facility also didn't perform as well in the quality-based measures we looked at in computing our nursing grades. We looked at the percent of residents experiencing major falls and pressure ulcers. This facility had more pressure ulcers and falls than the average facility. This could be a bad sign when you consider that many bed sores and falls are preventable with better nursing care. Unfortunately, these scores hurt this nursing home's nursing grade quite a bit.
