Historical

While we didn't give this facility a good overall score, we did give it a strong grade in nursing, where it earned a B. There are quite a few subcategories within this grade. Many of the factors relate to the quantity of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

We actually gave this facility a very solid score in the area of inspections as well. We gave it a grade of B- in this category. This is better than many facilities in this category. Our inspection grades are tied to pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these inspections. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to resident safety. This nursing home was hit with 12 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that CMS did not deem any of these deficiencies an imminent risk to resident safety or health. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Historical

This facilities next most favorable category was short-term care. We gave it a C in this category. This is essentially a slightly below average score in this category. Short-term care scores are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a broad scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, this facility was below average in terms of its level of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The final statistic we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 19.4 percent of this facility's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.

Historical

The last area we graded is long-term care. This facility was given a rock bottom grade of F in that area. Facilities that do not fare well in this category typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine healthcare services we assessed. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Candidly, we were a bit concerned this nursing home administered the vaccine to only 77.57576 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this nursing home wasn't as bad as we expected at keeping its patients out of the hospital. While it had 2.93 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted metric was not bad due to it having some more complex patients.
