Historical

In addition to being a respectable facility overall, this facility really excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned an A+. Few facilities performed better in this category. These inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This means that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.

Historical

This nursing home also was given a favorable long-term care grade. As a matter of fact, we awarded it a grade of B in that category, which happens to be one of our more favorable scores. In a long-term care setting, the nursing home's primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. After assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 82.825485 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which happens to be a bit less than we anticipated but still a reasonably acceptable figure. Lastly, we looked at the nursing home's number of hospitalizations. Here we found that this place had 3.08 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. While this wasn't as strong as most of its other scores in this category, this number can be skewed for some facilities based on the medical complexity of patients.

Historical

Unfortunately, this nursing home only earned a grade of D for its short-term care grade, which is not a very good score. Short-term care grades are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a broad range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Given its weak grade in this category, we were not surprised to learn that this place offers far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The last datapoint we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 48 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics sunk this facility's short-term care grade.

Historical

This nursing home's worst area is nursing, which is the last area we scored. Unfortunately, we gave it a lowly F for this category. Even with several solid scores in other areas, this grade is nevertheless disappointing so we would like to to make a note of it. When calculating a facility's nursing grade, we assess the number of hours nurses are caring for patients as well as the levels of training of the nurses. This particular nursing home provided 3.8 hours of nursing care per resident per day, which is below average. This nursing home also had abysmal scores in some of the quality-based measures to go along with its weak nursing hour totals. We looked at the percentage of patients suffering pressure ulcers and we were disappointed. This facility was at roughly 1.5 times the national average in this statistic.
