Nurse Quality

Historical

Although we didn't give this facility a good overall score, we did give it a very strong grade in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B+. Our nursing score considers several datapoints. The most important one is the amount of time nurses spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can often be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

C
Oct 18: CNov 18: CDec 18: CJan 19: CFeb 19: CMay 19: C
Historical

This facilities next most favorable category is short-term care. We awarded it a grade of C in this category. This is essentially a slightly below average grade in this area. Short-term care ratings are based on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a wide range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. Unfortunately, this facility was below average in terms of its level of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. The last item we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 33.3 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.

Facility Inspections

C
Oct 18: FNov 18: FDec 18: FJan 19: FFeb 19: FMay 19: C
Historical

This facility earned mediocre government inspections in recent years. We awarded them a C in this category. Our inspection grades are tied to datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these inspections. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to resident safety. This nursing home was hit with 2 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but none were in categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to be an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, they also received 28 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is certainly not a great sign.

Long-term Care Quality

D
Oct 18: B-Nov 18: B-Dec 18: B-Jan 19: B-Feb 19: B+May 19: D
Historical

Switching gears to the next area, we gave this facility a D for long-term care. This was the nursing home's weakest category score. Facilities that receive this type of score in long-term care likely don't provide the kind of consistent around the clock care that some other nursing homes offer. After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. We were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility vaccinated 68 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is several points less than the national average. We were stunned with its hospitalization rate. We found that this facility had 3.89 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is more than double the national average. This is certainly an alarming figure.
