While this place's overall score was as bad as it gets, it actually fared well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of B for that area, which is one of our better scores. Our inspection ratings are tied to several items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key item to look for on these inspections. You should especially avoid nursing homes that have severe deficiencies linked to endangerment of patients. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Historical

We gave this nursing home just a D for our short-term care rating and that actually turned out to be its second most respectable score. In computing our short-term care grades, we analyze a nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This category is generally a reliable assessment of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents that eventually returned home from this facility. This place performed better in this area, with 50.8 percent of its patients returning home.

Historical

Another issue is the F this facility was given in the area of long-term care. Nursing homes that receive this kind of grade in long-term care likely don't provide the type of consistent around the clock care that some other facilities provide. After looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 91.54929 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which happens to be a bit below what we were hoping for but still a respectable percentage. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 1.58 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This was its best score in this category.

Historical

Switching gears to our last category, this facility didn't fare very well in this category either. With an abysmal grade of F in nursing, this is about as as uninspiring as it gets. The nursing category includes several subcategories, most of which are tied to quantities of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 1.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. In addition to ranking below average in nursing hours per resident, this place also had poor marks in the quality-based measures we looked at in computing our nursing grades. We looked at the percent of residents sustaining pressure ulcers and major falls. This facility was at roughly 150 percent of the national average in both of these metrics. This is a bad sign when you consider that many bed sores and falls are preventable with better nursing care. These statistics helped pull down this facility's nursing rating quite a bit.
