Historical

Although we did not rate this facility favorably overall, we want to point out its nearly flawless inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A+ in this category. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this place had some deficiencies on its report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Historical

We gave this facility just a D for our long-term care rating and that actually wound up as its next most favorable category. In a long-term care setting, the primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Fortunately, this nursing home vaccinated 97.81022 percent of its residents, which is a very solid datapoint. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1.35 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.

Historical

Moving on to the area of short-term care, this nursing home was given just a D in that category. With our short-term care assessment, we strive to create a meaningful gauge for rehabilitation. In doing so, we look at the nursing home's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Based on its grade in this category, we weren't stunned to learn that this place is well below average in terms of its number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its residents based on the metrics we looked at. Finally, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Historical

The final category we rated is nursing. This facility was given a very poor grade of F in that category. Our nursing score weighs many subcategories, most of which are associated with levels of nurse staffing. This facility averaged only 2.6 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. To go along with its low totals in the area of nursing hours per patient, this nursing home had really bad scores in several of the quality-based measures we looked at in calculating our nursing scores. For starters, we looked at the percentage of residents having falls which led to serious injury. This place was at more than 150 percent of the national average in this statistic.
