Although we gave this place a poor overall grade, we awarded it a B+ for our inspections category. This was the result of the facility receiving a quality government inspection report this year. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite minor. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Additionally, we gave this nursing home an F in the category of long-term care. Nursing homes that do not fare well in this category typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine healthcare services we looked at. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination data. We were somewhat surprised to discover that this facility vaccinated just 46.783627 percent of its residents against pneumonia. We were also disappointed with the facility's hospitalization rate. We found that this nursing home had 2.96 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is nearly double the national average.

Historical

In addition, we gave this facility an F in the area of nursing care. Nursing grades are primarily based on a facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 3.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is slightly below average. Unfortunately, this nursing home also had abysmal marks in several of the quality-based measures to go along with its weak nursing hours. We looked at the percent of patients sustaining pressure ulcers. This facility was at more than twice the national average in this statistic. This is alarming when you consider that so many bed sores are preventable with better nursing care. This ended up sealing the nursing home's fate of receiving a poor nursing score.

The next area we looked at is short-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it a lowly F in this category, which is a rock bottom grade. Short-term care grades are meaningful for patients looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires more skilled nursing services. This includes a wide range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. With a score of this caliber in this category, we were not shocked to discover this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing figures we looked at. The facility supplied significantly fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most nursing homes. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 20.5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
