Historical

The primary reason this facility received a decent overall grade is its impeccable health inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our higher scores in that area, with a grade of A. This is a notably better score than the place's overall score, which was decent but certainly not elite. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be quite insignificant. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Historical

The next most favorable category we awarded this nursing home in any category came in the category of short-term care, where we awarded it a B-. Short-term care grades are often employed to gauge a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to provide highly graded rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must offer higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. This nursing home boosted its score in this category by offering more than 50% more physical therapy hours to its residents than the average facility. Lastly, we considered the number of patients that ultimately were able to return home from this facility. We found that it performed respectably in this area with 47.2 percent of its patients returning home.

Historical

This nursing home's nursing grade appears to be one of its better features. The facility received a grade of C in this category. Nursing scores are heavily correlated with quantity of nursing care available. Based on the data, it looks like this facility provides an impressive 3.9 hours per patient on a daily basis. This is more nursing care than most nursing homes provide. In calculating our grades, we apply more weight to hours performed by more highly trained nurses such as registered or licensed nurses. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed admirably in this datapoint.

Historical

The next category we analyzed was long-term care, turned out to be this facility's worst area. We gave this nursing home a D in that category. For patients looking for a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. One of the factors we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. Fortunately, this facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to 94.333336 percent of its residents. Lastly, we looked at the facility's number of hospitalizations. Here we found that this place fared much worse with 3 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, this statistic is nearly double the national average.
