Historical

This facility actually earned a very good score in the category of short-term care. In fact, we awarded it a grade of B+ for that area, which is a solid score. In the area of short-term care, we seek to qualify indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. We were not able to track down information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Finally, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Historical

We also gave this facility favorable marks in the area of nursing care, where it received a grade of B. Our nursing grade is primarily based on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed better than average in this area. This is often a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Historical

Moving on to the area of long-term care, this facility was given a grade of just D in this area. Facilities that receive this kind of score in long-term care likely don't provide the kind of consistent around the clock care that some other facilities offer. After we finished looking at the amount of care provided by nurses, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. Frankly, we were a bit concerned this facility vaccinated only 82.42424 percent of its patients against pneumonia. To our surprise, this facility was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 1.43 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.

Historical

The final category we looked at was inspections. Unfortunately, this ended up being this nursing home's weakest link. We gave it a D in this category. Since this data is collected by independent government inspectors, we weight it heavily in our assessment. Inspection ratings weigh several factors found on a facility's inspection report. You should be more cautious when considering a facility with severe deficiencies on its inspection reports. This facility was assessed 6 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we can say is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they posed a risk to resident health or safety. Finally, we also need to point out that this place received large government fines in recent years of more than $50,000. This often means that CMS inspectors became fed up after several years of failed inspections.
