Historical

Although we were down on this nursing home overall, we gave it a B in nursing. There are numerous criteria within this category. Many of the criteria reflect levels of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

We actually gave this nursing home a very solid grade in the area of inspections as well. We awarded it a B- in this category. Our inspection grades weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Historical

The third best area we awarded this nursing home in any area came in the category of short-term care, where we gave it a C. In calculating our short-term care scores, we look at a nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This area is generally a reliable assessment of the facility's rehabilitation services. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. Finally, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 28.1 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Historical

Turning to our last area, this nursing home really did not fare very well here either. With a very poor grade of F in long-term care, this is about as bad as it gets. Facilities that do not fare well in this category often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in some of the areas of routine healthcare services we assessed. One of the data points we considered on top of nursing hours is vaccines. Candidly, we were a bit alarmed this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to only 82.75862 percent of its residents. The last datapoint we assessed was the facility's hospitalization rate. We found that this facility had 2 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is a higher hospitalization rate than most nursing homes, but it's not as bad as we expected.
