While this place's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually didn't perform terribly in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B- for that category, which is one of our better scores. Our inspection ratings are tied to many items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key item to look for on these inspections. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to resident safety. This place was hit with 9 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This means that the inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to resident health or safety. Lastly, this facility was flagged by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We prefer to avoid facilities with this designation. Please do your best to find an alternative nursing home.

This facility also didn't perform terribly in the category of short-term care. In fact, we awarded it a grade of C in that category, which is another one of its more respectable scores. In calculating our short-term care grades, we scrutinize the facility's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This grade is frequently a fair assessment of the facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. This nursing home provides a decent amount of services from physical therapists and registered nurses based on our assessment. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients who returned home from this facility. We found that 40.8 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually below the national average.

This nursing home provides an impressive 4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, our nursing ratings also weigh quality-based metrics, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed better than average in this area.

Historical

Moving on to our last area, this nursing home really didn't fare well in this category either. With a poor grade of F in long-term care, this is about as as uninspiring as it gets. When facilities receive a grade in this range in this category it generally means the facility did not perform well in our quality measures relating to resident care. This nursing home's vaccination records weren't as favorable some of its other statistics in this category, such as its nursing hours data. It provided the pneumonia vaccine to just 87.89346 percent of its patients. We would like to see some improvement herein this statistic in the future. Finally, we looked at the facility's number of hospitalizations. Here we found that this nursing home had 2.08 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, this figure is also alarming.
