Historical

While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable inspection report this year. As a result, it received a decent grade in that category with a score of C. Inspection ratings account for several factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This facility had 7 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were in any of the categories labeled J through L. This tells you that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to put resident safety or health in immediate harm or jeopardy. Finally, we would like to point out that this facility has received some government fines in recent years. Fortunately these fines were not on the high end as government fines go. That said, this is still not what we like to see.

We also wanted to point out that this nursing home received an F for its nursing grade. Nursing scores are mostly tied to a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provided a meager 2.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is not a very impressive figure. Unfortunately, this nursing home also had terrible marks in some of the quality-based measures to pair with its low nursing hour totals. We looked at the percentage of patients suffering pressure ulcers and we were quite disappointed. This facility was at approximately 1.5 times the national average in this statistic.

Historical

The third area we assessed is short-term care. This facility's received a poor short-term care score where it received a lowly F. In our short-term care grade, we try to forge a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we look at the facility's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Given its grade in this category, we weren't stunned to discover that this nursing home was well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its patients based on the data we looked at. The final datapoint we considered in this area is the percentage of patients that who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 29.8 percent of its patients returning home. This was quite a bit below average.

Historical

Switching gears to our final area, this nursing home didn't perform very well here either. Due to a poor grade of F in long-term care, this is really as bad as it gets. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 95.03311 percent of its residents, which is higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. To our surprise, this nursing home also keeps its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 1.7 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
