Historical

Even though this nursing home's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it didn't perform as badly in nursing. In fact, we gave it a B- for this area. The nursing category consists of many components, many of which are associated with nursing hours. This particular nursing home provided 3.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as minimizing major falls. This nursing home performed admirably in this subcategory. Avoiding serious falls is often a good indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place. Some falls can be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses aids to assist its patients.

Historical

We were also pleasantly surprised to discover that this facility earned a reasonably solid long-term care rating this year. We gave it a grade of B- in that area. Long-term care grades assess a facility's assistance with daily living rather than the skilled nursing and healthcare services that are critical to a rehabilitation facility. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Unfortunately, this place's hospitalization rate was less favorable. We found that this facility had 2.29 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days.

Historical

This nursing home also didn't rate poorly in the area of short-term care. In fact, we gave it a grade of C for that area, which happens to be another one of its better scores. With our short-term care grade, we try to craft a sound barometer for rehabilitation. In this process, we assess the nursing home's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. We found that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. It offered fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The last datapoint we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. This place was respectable in this metric with 46.2 percent of its residents returning home.

Historical

Turning to our final category of inspections, this facility received a grade that's as bad as it gets. We weight this category more heavily than our other categories. When a nursing home has this poor of an inspection score, you should expect some severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to resident safety. This facility was assessed 13 deficiencies by CMS. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they caused a risk to patient health or safety. Finally, CMS cited this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. Hopefully, its performance improves in the future, but until then we simply can't recommend this facility.
