Historical

Although this facility's overall score was terrible, it actually fared well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B+ for that category, which is one of our better scores. Inspection scores account for several factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid nursing homes with too many deficiencies flagged. This nursing home received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to be an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Unfortunately, this facility's next best score is long-term care. However, with a D in this category, it still performed somewhat badly. If you are seeking services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care scores. One of the statistics we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccinations. Thankfully, this facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 96.55173 percent of its patients. Lastly, we looked at its number of hospitalizations. We found that this facility fared radically worse with 3.74 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, this statistic is more than twice the national average.

Historical

Unfortunately, we gave this facility an F for its nursing grade. Our nursing grade looks at the facility's level of nurse staffing. We look at both the levels of licensure of the nurses and the number of hours spent with patients. This place averaged a meager 3.1 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This facility also had terrible scores in some of the quality-based measures to pair with its low nursing hours. We looked at the percentage of residents suffering pressure ulcers and we were quite disappointed. This nursing home was at approximately 1.5 times the national average in this area.

Historical

The next area we assessed is short-term care, where this nursing home was given a poor score in this area also. Sadly, it received an abysmal F in this area, which is obviously somewhat alarming. Our short-term care grade is often used to score a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to provide high-end rehabilitation services, facilities generally must offer better levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other types of therapists. Considering its abysmal rating in this area, we weren't surprised to find this facility provided far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most other nursing homes. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who eventually returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 22.5 percent of its patients returning home. This was quite a bit below the national average.
