Historical

This facility earned a decent short-term care rating. This actually proved to be its best category. In that area, we gave it a B-. In our short-term care grade, we seek to craft a fair barometer for rehabilitation. In this process, we assess a facility's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. We were pleased to find that this facility employs both registered nurses and physical therapists. This can't be said for all nursing homes. The final item we considered in this category is the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. This nursing home performed better in this statistic. This place fared better than most nursing homes in this metric with 49.4 percent of its patients returning home. At most nursing homes, fewer than half of their short-stay residents are able to return home.

Historical

Surprisingly, this nursing home actually earned a good score in inspections as well. We gave it a B- for that category, which is one of our better scores. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively minor. This facility was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to resident health or safety. A couple of minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of B-. Nursing grades are based largely on quality and quantity of nursing care. This nursing home averages 3.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also considered some quality-based metrics. This nursing home scored well in a few of the quality-based metrics we assessed. In terms of the number of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, this place outpaced the national average.

Historical

The final category we analyzed was long-term care. We gave it a B- in that category. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this area. Our long-term care scores are essential for prospective residents needing non-healthcare services such as personal care. One of the data points we considered on top of nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. Fortunately, this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
