Historical

While this nursing home's overall grade was not bad, it really excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our best scores. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with better scores in this area most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This tells you the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are rare in the industry.

Historical

One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. This turned out to be its second best category grade. In that category, we awarded this facility an B+. Nursing grades are based in large part on nurse staffing levels. This nursing home averages 3.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at certain nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these metrics as predictive measures of the caliber of nursing care provided, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

Short-term Care Quality

Oct 18: CNov 18: CDec 18: CJan 19: CFeb 19: CMay 19: B-
Historical

This facility was given its third most favorable category score in the category of short-term care. We gave this facility a B- in this category, which is an acceptable score. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to qualify measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists. One of this nursing home's strengths is registered nurse hours. We found that it offers more care from registered nurses to its residents than most facilities. The last statistic we considered in this category is the percentage of patients that who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that just 42.5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Oct 18: FNov 18: FDec 18: FJan 19: DFeb 19: CMay 19: C
Historical

Our next category is long-term care, where we gave this nursing home a grade of C in that category. Long-term care grades assess a facility's personal care rather than the highly skilled nursing and healthcare services that are critical to a skilled nursing facility. After considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 95.28302 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is more than the average nursing home. Lastly, we looked at the facility's number of hospitalizations. We found that this place had 2.71 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, this figure was less impressive than its other scores in this category.
