Historical

While we graded this nursing home incredibly poorly overall, it earned a relatively impressive government inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our more favorable scores in that category with a B. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. It is generally best to avoid nursing homes that had too many deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Historical

This nursing home really excelled in the category of nursing, where it received an C. Few places fared better in this category. There are quite a few criteria within this area. Most of these subcategories are tied to staffing levels. This nursing home averages just 2.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home actually fared better in some of the quality measures we looked at. In fact, it scored well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the quantity of hours of care provided.

Historical

This facility also didn't perform too badly in the category of short-term care. Indeed, we gave it a C in that category, which happens to be among its better grades. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to assess indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We look at a facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. One reason for this facility's strong score in this category is that it provides a greater volume of physical therapist hours to its residents than the average nursing home. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this is below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Historical

The last category we looked at was long-term care, which ended up being this nursing home's worst category. We awarded this facility a grade of D in this category. If you are looking for anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care grades. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is better than most nursing homes. Surprisingly, this nursing home also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
