Historical

While this facility's overall grade was not bad, it really fared well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Inspection scores weigh a host of factors found on a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher scores in this area tend to have few of these severe deficiencies. This place was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This indicates that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to cause 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 also was awarded a favorable long-term care score. As a matter of fact, we awarded them a grade of B in that category, which is one of our better. Facilities that receive this type of score in long-term care tend to provide consistent around the clock care to ensure patients are kept in good health. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 94.19027 percent of its patients. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents healthy. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1.62 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home.

Historical

Unfortunately, this facility's next best category is short-term care. As it turns out, with a grade of D in this category, it still fared somewhat poorly. Short-term care scores are meaningful for residents looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates more highly-skilled nursing services. This means a wide spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 48.7 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was below the national average.

Historical

This facility's weakest category was nursing, which is the last category we analyzed. It received a lowly F in this category. Even with a few acceptable grades in other areas, this score is still alarming so we felt obligated to make sure you are aware. When calculating our nursing ratings, we look at both staffing levels and the skill levels of those nurses. With only 3.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day, this place's nurse staffing levels were quite a bit below average. On top of receiving below average marks for nursing hours, this facility was a bit less impressive in some of the quality-based measures we looked at in determining our nursing scores. We looked at the percent of residents experiencing pressure ulcers and found that this place was at roughly 1.5 times the national average in this statistic. This is likely a bad sign when you consider that many pressure ulcers are believed to be preventable with better nursing care. Unfortunately, this statistic really dragged down this facility's nursing rating significantly.
