Historical

This nursing home received an impressive short-term care score this year. We gave it a B in this category. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to qualify measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. One reason for this facility's strong score in this category is that it provides a substantially greater volume of physical therapist hours to its residents than the average nursing home. The last statistic we looked at in this category is the number of patients who were able to return home. This nursing home was above average with 52.7 percent of its patients able to return home.

We also want to point out that this facility received a decent grade in our nursing category. We awarded it a grade of B- in the area. We scrutinized the licensure of nurses employed by the nursing home, as well as the quantity of time the nurses spent with residents, in computing our grade in this area. This nursing home averages just 2.8 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, which is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility actually excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. It scored well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the number of hours of care provided.

Historical

This facility earned slightly below average inspections in recent years. We awarded them a C in this category. Our inspection ratings weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. This nursing home was assessed 6 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but none were in any of the categories labeled G through L. This indicates that this facility avoided the more significant classes of deficiencies. Finally, they also received 54 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is certainly not a great sign.

Historical

The final category we analyzed is long-term care, where this nursing home received a poor grade in this category as well. Sadly, it received a lowly F for this category, which is obviously somewhat alarming. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in this category likely don't provide the type of consistent around the clock care that some other facilities offer. After looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. Frankly, we were a bit alarmed this facility vaccinated 57.97342 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which happens to be quite a bit lower than what we expected. Unfortunately, this place's hospitalization rate was also a cause for concern. Here we found that this place had 2.72 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an alarming rate.
