Historical

While this nursing home's overall score was not a highlight, it actually excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it an A+ for that area, which is one of our highest scores. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. It is typically in your best interest to avoid facilities that have a long list of deficiencies. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

The second most favorable category we gave this nursing home in any category came in the category of long-term care, where we gave it a C. If you are looking for anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care grades. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Frankly, we were a bit alarmed this nursing home vaccinated just 81.888245 percent of its patients. Finally, we looked at the facility's number of hospitalizations. With 1.84 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this place was also below the national average.

Historical

This facility's next best category was nursing, but even there it received a grade of just D. This is still a well below average grade. There are a host of datapoints within this category. Most of the criteria reflect staffing levels. This nursing home provides 2.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also looked at some quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This place was above average in two of the major statistics we focus on, with solid marks for minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Historical

The last category we scored is short-term care. This nursing home received a rock bottom grade of F in that category. Our short-term care grade is commonly employed to assess a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to offer good rehabilitation services, facilities generally must offer higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Based on its grade in this area, we weren't surprised to find that this nursing home was well below average in terms of its number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the data we assessed. Honestly, this was about what we expected to find. The last measure we looked at in this area is the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 19.7 percent of its patients returning home.
