Historical

The main reason this nursing home received a decent overall score is its impeccable health inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our higher grades in that area, with an A+. This is a much better grade than the facility's overall grade, which was decent but not in the elite range. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe. This means that the inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to cause an immediate threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor dings are not necessarily something to panic about.

Historical

One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. Nursing proved to be its second best category grade. In that category, we gave this facility an B-. We weighed the skill-level of nurses employed by the facility, as well as the quantity of time the nurses worked with patients, in computing our rating in this category. This nursing home provides 3.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also factored in some quality-based statistics in this category. While this place did not rank well in terms of its nursing hours, it fared much better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. For example, in terms of the number of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, this facility fared better than average. This is generally a reliable indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place. Pressure ulcers can many times be prevented with better nursing care.

Historical

This nursing home received its next best category grade in the category of long-term care. We gave this nursing home a grade of C in this area, which is an acceptable score. For residents seeking a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. After considering the amount of nursing care, we turned to the facility's vaccination data. We were pleased to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 95.200005 percent of its residents against pneumonia. The last statistic we assessed was the nursing home's hospitalization rate. Although it had 2.05 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, its risk adjusted score was not too far off the national average.

Historical

The next area we graded was short-term care. We gave this facility a grade of C in that category. In determining our short-term care grades, we look at the facility's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This rating is often a fair assessment of the facility's rehabilitation services. This facility is above average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse staffing provided to its patients. The last statistic we assessed in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 37.7 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.
