Historical

We gave this nursing home one of our better scores in the area of nursing, with a grade of A-. This is a notably better grade than the facility's overall score, which was decent but not in the elite range. The nursing rating weighs several subcategories, but the primary consideration is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as employing a system of turning a resident more frequently.

This facility also earned a very favorable inspection rating. In that area, we gave this nursing home a B. Our inspection ratings are tied to several datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that excel in this category have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. 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 through L. This means that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple relatively minor dings aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Historical

The last category we rated was long-term care, which ended up being this facility's weakest category. We awarded this nursing home a grade of D in that area. Of course, this category pulled down the facility's overall grade to a certain degree. When facilities receive this type of grade in long-term care it is a bad sign for resident care and it may indicate that the place is not as well-staffed with nurses and aids. After we finished assessing the amount of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination records. We were a bit concerned this facility vaccinated just 60.614525 percent of its residents against pneumonia. The last datapoint we assessed is its hospitalization rate. Here we found that this facility had 1.85 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is a higher hospitalization rate than the average nursing home, but it is not quite as bad as we feared it might be.
