Historical

While we were not high on this facility overall, we awarded it an A for our inspections rating. This score is far more impressive than the facility's overall grade. Inspection scores account for a host of factors found on a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid facilities with a bunch of deficiencies flagged. While this place 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 the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Historical

Sadly, this facility's second most respectable score is long-term care. As it turns out, with a D in this area, it still fared relatively poorly. When facilities receive a score in this range in long-term care it generally means the nursing home did not perform well in our quality measures relating to patient care. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. As it turns out, this facility vaccinated only 40.51282 percent of its patients, which is somewhat alarming. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.81 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This was its best score in this category.

Historical

We awarded this nursing home a grade of just D for our short-term care rating. This is not one of our better scores. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The purpose is to create a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. With its poor grade in this area, we weren't stunned to learn this nursing home offers substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The last area we looked at in this area is the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. It fared better in this area, with 50.5 percent of its patients returning home. This was just about this nursing home's only redeeming quality in this area.

Historical

Turning to the last area, this facility really didn't perform well in this category either. With an abysmal grade of F in nursing, this is really as terrible as it gets. In calculating a facility's nursing rating, we look at the amount of time nurses spend with patients as well as the skill levels of the nurses. This nursing home averaged just 2.9 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. On top of its below average nursing hour totals, this place earned suboptimal scores in many of the quality-based measures we considered in computing our nursing ratings. We found that more of this nursing home's patients experienced falls leading to major injury.
