Historical

Although this nursing home's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it performed pretty well in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B for that area, which is one of our better scores. Inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home was assessed 9 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that CMS didn't deem any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to resident health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Sadly, this nursing home only received a grade of D for its short-term care rating, which turns out to be one of its more respectable category scores. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to evaluate indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Not surprisingly based on its grade in this area, this nursing home was well below average in one of the two key staffing areas we looked at. It offered far fewer registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well in this area. In fact, we found that just 44.7 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.

The third area we analyzed was long-term care. This facility's was given a low-end long-term care grade where it received a lowly F. Facilities that do not score well in this category often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in some of the areas of routine healthcare services we assessed. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We discovered that this facility vaccinated a relatively low 86.580086 percent of its residents, which is slightly concerning. We were stunned with the facility's hospitalization rate. We found that this nursing home had 5.59 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is more than double the national average. This is definitely an alarming statistic.

Historical

The last category we rated was nursing, where this facility was given a rock bottom score in this area as well. We gave it an abysmal F for this area, which is definitely a major disappointment. When computing a facility's nursing grade, we consider the amount of time nurses are with patients and the levels of training of those nurses. This nursing home averaged only 3.1 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is well below average. This place also had abysmal scores in some of the quality-based metrics to pair with its low nursing hour totals. We looked at the percent of residents sustaining pressure ulcers and we were very disappointed. This facility was at roughly 1.5 times the national average in this metric.
