Historical

Although this place's overall score was terrible, it performed well in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B+ for that category, which is one of our better scores. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. It is typically in your best interest to avoid facilities that have a long list of deficiencies. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Historical

This facility's next best score is short-term care, but it nevertheless received just a D in that category. This still happens to be a relatively poor score. Our short-term care grades are likely more important for folks in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. This means not only nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Given its grade in this area, we were not stunned to find that this facility was well below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse hours provided to its residents. Frankly, this was about what we expected here. The final statistic we assessed in this category is the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area, with just 41.8 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, this was well below the national average.

Historical

In addition, we gave this facility an F in the area of nursing care. The nursing grade includes many subcategories, but the paramount one is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This place averaged just 3.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is not a very impressive figure. This nursing home also had terrible scores in some of the quality-based measures to go along with its low nursing hour totals. We looked at the percent of residents suffering pressure ulcers and we were very disappointed. This nursing home was at roughly 150 percent of the national average in this statistic. This is a bad sign when you consider that many bed sores could be avoided with better nursing care. This metric helped pull down this facility's nursing score significantly.

Historical

The next area we rated is long-term care. This facility was given a poor grade of F in this category. For prospective residents seeking a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. One of the criteria we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccines. Thankfully, this facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 96.32588 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Although it had 2.14 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, its risk adjusted metric was not bad due to it having some more complex patients.
