Historical

While we were fairly low on this nursing home overall, we awarded it a grade of A for our inspections rating. This score is far more impressive than the nursing home's overall grade. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite minor. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. In spite of this deficiency, this place still had a relatively positive inspection report.

Historical

This facility's second best area was its short-term care score, where it was given a grade of C. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we size up a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. This grade is frequently a useful measure of the facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the typical facility. The last statistic we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. This proved to be a stronger area than its staffing metrics. It performed well in this metric with 61.5 percent of its patients returning home. This was a big boost to its score in this area.

Historical

This facility's third most favorable category was its long-term care score, where it was awarded a C. Long-term care ratings are pivotal for people seeking non-healthcare services such as personal care. Once we concluded our assessment of the volume of nursing care, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. Frankly, we were a bit worried that this facility vaccinated only 77.61194 percent of its patients for pneumonia. The last datapoint we assessed was the facility's hospitalization rate. While it had 2.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, its risk adjusted score was more favorable.

Historical

The last area we assessed is nursing. This facility was given a poor grade of F in this area. We assessed the skill-level of nurses at the nursing home, as well as the quantity of time the nurses worked with residents, in computing our grade in this category. This place averaged a meager 2.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. In addition to receiving below average marks for total nursing hours, this facility was a bit less impressive in some of the quality-based measures we looked at in calculating our nursing ratings. We looked at the percentage of patients suffering pressure ulcers and found this nursing home was at roughly 150 percent of the national average in this statistic.
