Historical

This facility earned an elite long-term care score. In fact, we gave this nursing home an A- in this category, which really bumped up its overall grade. For long-term care residents, the primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 82.75862 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which happens to be a few points less than we expected but still a respectable figure. The last statistic we assessed is the nursing home's hospitalization rate. Here we found that this place had 2.4 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days.

In addition, this nursing home also excelled in the area of inspections, where it received an B+. Few nursing homes performed as well in this category. Inspection scores are tied to items found on the a nursing home's recent inspections. Places that excel in this area typically have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This place received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This indicates that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to cause an imminent risk to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

We also gave this facility a respectable score in the area of short-term care, where we gave it a grade of C. With our short-term care rating, we seek to create a valuable measure for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we look at a nursing home's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. We weren't able to track down information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The final measure we assessed in this category is the number of patients who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that just 33.6 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Historical

The next category we looked at is nursing. We gave it a grade of C in that area. This is a decent grade in this category. Nursing scores are heavily correlated with levels of nurse staffing. This place provided just 0 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a low total compared to most facilities. On top of ranking poorly in terms of nursing hours provided, this nursing home also fell short in certain statistics that focus on quality of care. This nursing home's nursing rating was hurt by poor performance in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers. In fact, we found that 20.5 percent of this nursing home's residents experienced pressure ulcers. This is at least double the average nursing home.
