Historical

While we were fairly low on this facility overall, we awarded it an A- for our inspections rating. This score is significantly more impressive than the nursing home's overall score. Our inspection grades are based on pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these inspections. Most importantly, you should avoid facilities that have severe deficiencies linked to risks to resident well being. Although this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Historical

One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing score. In that category, we awarded this facility an C. Our nursing grade is largely tied to a facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 3.1 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Lastly, despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically an indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place.

Historical

This facility's second lowest score is short-term care, where it received a grade of just D in that area. This is a relatively poor grade. Our short-term care ratings are crucial for individuals requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires additional highly-skilled nursing. This means a broad spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The final measure we considered in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 21 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. This statistic was damning for this facility's short-term care grade.

Historical

The final area we assessed is long-term care, where this facility received a very poor score in this area as well. It received an abysmal F in this area, which is obviously a major disappointment. Long-term care scores in this range generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids, as well as the levels of routine medical care available. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 91.49798 percent of its residents. This is a bit lower than we expected but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. Surprisingly, this facility actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had just 1.5 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
