Historical

Even though we graded this facility extremely poorly overall, it received a somewhat respectable nursing rating this year. We gave it a B- in that category. In computing our nursing ratings, we look at both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the skill levels of those nurses. This nursing home provided just 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a low total compared to most nursing homes. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place surprisingly excelled in some of the quality measures we assessed. In fact, it scored well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the quantity of hours of care provided.

Historical

This nursing home also didn't grade out too badly in the area of short-term care. In fact, we gave it a C for that category, which ended up being another one of its more favorable scores. Our short-term care grades are considered to be most important for people needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. This includes not just nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. In this place's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than a typical facility. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients that eventually returned home from this facility. We found that 33.2 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit below average.

Historical

This facility also didn't fare terribly in the area of long-term care. In fact, we gave it a C in that category, which ended up being among its more respectable grades. Our long-term care ratings are based on the nursing home's quantity of care. This includes a vast scope of personal care services, ranging from assistance with activities of daily living to routine medical services. One of the datapoints we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccines. Thankfully, this facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to 96.27329 percent of its patients. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1.66 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes.

Historical

In our final category of inspections, this nursing home received an F here. For facilities that received this bad of an inspection grade, we would scrutinize any severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This nursing home had one category J or K deficiency, which rank among the worst deficiencies. This generally means that CMS found a deficiency which places resident health or safety in imminent jeopardy. Another area of concern is that CMS flagged this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. This is not what you want to see. We advise you to direct your search elsewhere.
