While we were not very complementary of this facility's overall score, it actually received a very impressive inspection report this year. In fact, it received an excellent inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our best grades in that category with an A. Our inspection grades account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid facilities with a list of deficiencies flagged. Fortunately, although this facility had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

Historical

This nursing home was awarded its next best category score in the category of long-term care. We awarded this nursing home a grade of B- in this area, which is a reasonably acceptable grade. Long-term care scores are critical for patients seeking personal care. After considering the quantity of nursing care, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. We were optimistic to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. This nursing home keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Historical

Sadly, this facility's next best category was short-term care. Nevertheless, with a D in this category, it still fared relatively poorly. Short-term care scores are based on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a vast scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. With its grade in this area, we weren't stunned to find that this facility was well below average in terms of the number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. The last area we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who returned home from the facility. This place fared better in this area, with 49.7 percent of its residents returning home. This was just about this nursing home's only redeeming quality in this area.

Historical

The last category we scored is nursing, where this nursing home was given a poor score in this category also. Sadly, it received a lowly F in this area, which is definitely a major concern. Nursing scores are primarily tied to the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averaged just 2.8 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is an alarmingly low total. This facility also had terrible marks in some of the quality-based measures to pair with its low nursing hour totals. We looked at the percent of residents experiencing pressure ulcers and we were quite disappointed. This facility was at roughly 1.5 times the national average in this metric. This is a bad sign in light of the fact that so many bed sores could be avoided with better nursing care. This statistic helped pull down this facility's nursing rating quite a bit.
