Historical

While this facility's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually didn't perform terribly in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B- for that category, which is one of our better scores. We would argue that one of the most critical factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. We especially look at the severity of those deficiencies. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Surprisingly, we gave this nursing home a grade of B- for our short-term care score, which really isn't too bad of a score. In our short-term care score, we attempt to forge a valuable measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we assess a facility's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. We found that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. It supplied fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. It is important to determine whether this also correlates to a lower quality of care. The final item we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. It fared well in this area with 60.4 percent of its residents returning home.

Historical

This facility ended up receiving rock bottom score in our nursing category. It received an F in this category. In determining a facility's nursing rating, we consider the amount of time nurses spend with patients and the level of licensure of the nurses. This facility provided just 2.9 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. In addition to receiving below average marks for total nursing hours, this place was a bit less impressive in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at in calculating our nursing grades. We looked at the percentage of residents experiencing pressure ulcers and found that this nursing home was at roughly 1.5 times the national average in this statistic.

Historical

Turning to our last area, this facility did not perform very well in this category either. With a poor grade of F in long-term care, this is about as bad as it gets. Facilities that don't fare well in long-term care typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine healthcare services we looked at. On top of considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. As it turns out, this facility gave the vaccine to just 77.22772 percent of its residents, which is several points lower than we expected. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This was its best score in this category.
