Historical

The main reason this nursing home received a decent overall score is its excellent government inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our better grades in that category, with an A. This is a notably better score than the place's overall grade, which was decent but certainly not elite. Our inspection grades account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this category tend to have very few severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Historical

This nursing home's second most favorable area is short-term care. We gave it a B- in this area. This is basically a middle of the road score in this area. Short-term care grades are typically employed to assess a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To provide highly rated rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must feature higher levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other types of therapists. One of this nursing home's strength is that it offers more hours of physical therapy per week to its residents. The final metric we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. It was respectable in this metric with 48.9 percent of its patients returning home.

Historical

This nursing home received its third most favorable category grade in the category of long-term care. We awarded this facility a C in this area, which is a decent grade. Our long-term care ratings are more important for people requiring more traditional services associated with personal care. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. This place also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had just 1.51 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days.

Historical

The last area we analyzed is nursing, proved to be this nursing home's worst area. We gave this nursing home a grade of D in that area. There are quite a few criteria included in this category. Many of these criteria relate to staffing levels. With just 3.2 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, this facility's nurse staffing levels were far below average. To go along with its below average total nursing hours per resident, this facility had really poor scores in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at in computing our nursing ratings. For starters, we looked at the percentage of patients sustaining falls leading to serious injury. This place was at more than 150 percent of the national average in this statistic. This is quite concerning in light of the fact that so many falls could be prevented with better nursing care. This ended up sealing the facility's fate of earning a poor nursing grade.
