Historical

This facility earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to emphasize its excellent inspection reports in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A in this category. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this area typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. While this place had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Historical

This nursing home's next best area ended up being its short-term care grade, where it received a B-. Short-term care grades are commonly used to assess a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to provide highly graded rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must provide higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. Fortunately, this nursing home offers both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities offer both. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. It was above average in this metric with 50.4 percent of its residents returning home.

Historical

The next highest grade we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of C. Our nursing grade is largely associated with the facility's nurse staffing. This place provides only 3.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a somewhat uninspiring figure as it is well below average. Finally, our nursing grades also consider some quality-focused metrics. We especially like to look at the percent of residents who experienced pressure ulcers and major falls. These metrics are indicators of the quality of nursing care, since better care tends to reduce these issues.

Historical

This nursing home's least impressive area was long-term care, which is the last category we assessed. Sadly, it received an F for this category. Despite some solid scores in other areas, this score is still disappointing so we would like to to make a note of it. If you are seeking anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care scores. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Fortunately, this facility provided the vaccine to 99.51691 percent of its residents, which is a very respectable percentage. Lastly, we looked at the facility's number of hospitalizations. With 1.73 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this place didn't fare quite as well.
