Historical

To pair with its relatively modest overall score, we gave this facility an A- for its inspection grade. This grade is far better than the facility's overall grade. Our inspection scores account for a host of factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this area generally have very few of these severe deficiencies. 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. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Historical

This nursing home also performed favorably in the area of long-term care, where we awarded it a score of A-. Very few nursing homes fared more favorably in this category. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in this category typically provide consistent around the clock care to ensure residents are well cared for. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 98.64253 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is much higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. This nursing home also keeps its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 1.27 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a substantially lower hospitalization rate than most nursing homes.

Historical

One of this facility's better category grades was in the area of nursing care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of C. We analyzed the skill-level of nurses at the nursing home, in addition to the number of hours the nurses were with patients, in computing our score in this area. This nursing home averages just 2.8 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Finally, we look at quality-based metrics, such as the percentage of patients who sustained pressure ulcers and major falls. These statistics are decent indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Historical

This nursing home's weakest area is short-term care, which is the final category we scored. In this area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of just D. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to assess measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Unfortunately, we learned that this place offers less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most other nursing homes. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients that were able to return home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 19.5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
