Historical

While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable inspection report this year. As a result, it received a decent grade in that category with a score of B-. We believe that one of the most important factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially focus on the severity of the deficiencies. While this place had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Incredibly, we gave this facility a grade of C for its short-term care score, which really isn't a bad grade. In the category of short-term care, we seek to assess measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We analyze a facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than a typical facility. The hope is always that this does not adversely impact the quality of care. The final statistic we looked at in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. In fact, we found that it was above average in this metric with 50.5 percent of its patients returning home.

Sadly, this facility's next best score is long-term care. As it turns out, with a grade of D in this area, it still fared somewhat badly. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 99.58848 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1.23 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.

Historical

The final area we assessed was nursing, where this facility was given an abysmal grade here as well. We gave it a lowly F for this area, which is definitely somewhat alarming. When calculating our nursing scores, we assess both staffing levels and the skill levels of the nurses. This nursing home provides 3.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is slightly below average. On top of being below average in nursing hours per resident, this place also had poor scores in the quality-based measures we looked at in calculating our nursing ratings. We looked at the percent of patients experiencing pressure ulcers and major falls. This place was at roughly 1.5 times the national average in both of these statistics. This is a bad sign when you consider that many bed sores and falls are preventable with better nursing care. These metrics helped pull down this facility's nursing rating significantly.
