Historical

While we graded this nursing home incredibly poorly overall, it received a very impressive government inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our best scores in that category with a grade of A-. Arguably the most important factor we consider in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. It is typically best to avoid nursing homes that had too many deficiencies. While this facility had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G through L. This means CMS didn't deem 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

Turning to the category of short-term care, this nursing home was given a grade of just D in that area. Unfortunately, this ended up being one of its better grades. Our short-term care ratings are arguably most important for individuals requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. This means not just nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. In this place's case, it looks like it offered less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the average facility. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely was not a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 39.5 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, about half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.

Historical

Unfortunately, this facility only received a grade of D for its nursing grade, which was actually one of its better category grades. The nursing grade includes numerous factors. The most heavily weighted variable is the quantity of hours nurses spent with patients. This nursing home offered only 2.8 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This place also had terrible scores in some of the quality-based metrics to go along with its low nursing hour totals. We looked at the percent of residents suffering pressure ulcers and we were quite disappointed. This place was at roughly 1.5 times the national average in this area. This is a bad sign in light of the fact that so many bed sores could be avoided with better nursing care. This metric helped pull down this facility's nursing score quite a bit.

Historical

The last area we scored was long-term care. It received an abysmal F in this area, which is a very poor score. Nursing homes that don't fare well in long-term care typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine personal care we looked at. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccinations. Candidly, we were a bit worried that this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to only 73.030304 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this place wasn't as bad as we expected at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Although it had 2.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted statistic wasn't bad since it had more complicated patients.
