Historical

Even though we didn't give this nursing home a good overall grade, we actually gave it a strong score for short-term care, where it received a B+. In the category of short-term care, we endeavor to assess indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We look at a facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Fortunately, this nursing home offers both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities offer both. The last datapoint we looked at in this area is the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. This place performed better than most nursing homes in this area with 55.6 percent of its patients returning home. For most facilities, fewer than half of their short-term residents are able to return home.

Historical

Shockingly, this facility actually earned a good grade in the area of inspections as well. We gave it a grade of B for that category, which is one of our better grades. Few facilities that were this poor overall earned multiple category grades of this caliber. Inspection scores weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid nursing homes with a list of deficiencies flagged. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Historical

We gave this facility just a D for our long-term care rating. This is not a very good score. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 97.560974 percent of its residents. Finally, we looked at the facility's number of hospitalizations. Here we found that this facility had 2.05 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, this figure is not nearly as favorable than its vaccination record.

Historical

Switching gears to the last category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of D for our nursing category. This was the nursing home's least impressive category score. Our nursing rating analyzes the facility's level of nurse staffing. We factor in both the levels of training of those nurses and the number of hours spent with residents. Quantity of nursing care is apparently not the problem here with this nursing home's grade. This place actually provides an above average 4.1 hours of nursing care per patient per day. Despite performing well in terms of nursing hours, this facility did not fare as well in the quality-based measures we looked at in calculating our nursing grades. We looked at the percentage of patients experiencing pressure ulcers and major falls. This nursing home was above the national average in both of these metrics. This is not a good sign when you consider that many bed sores and falls are believed to be preventable with better nursing care. These data points pulled down this nursing home's nursing grade quite a bit.
