Historical

Although we gave this facility a terrible overall score, we awarded it a B- for our nursing category. There are numerous subcategories within this category. Many of these factors are tied to staffing levels. This place provided just 0 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a relatively low total compared with most facilities. While this place didn't really impress in terms of the quantity of nursing care offered, it performed admirably in a few of our quality measures. It was above average in two of the major areas we look at, with positive reviews for minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Historical

This nursing home also didn't rate terribly in the category of short-term care. In fact, we gave it a grade of B- for that category, which wound up being another one of its more favorable grades. Our short-term care grades are based on the nursing home's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a wide spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. In this place's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the average facility. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This proved to be more of a strength for this facility. In fact, we found that it outperformed the majority of facilities in the nation in this area with 49.5 percent of its residents returning home.

Historical

We gave this nursing home a grade of just D for our long-term care grade. This is not a very good score. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Fortunately, this nursing home administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is a very solid datapoint. To our surprise, this place also wasn't as bad as we expected at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Although it had 2 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted score was not bad since it had more complex patients.

Historical

The last category we assessed was inspections. This nursing home did not receive positive inspections in recent years. As a result, we gave it an F in this category. For places with poor inspection scores, you should really scrutinize any severe deficiencies found on their inspection reports. This particular facility was assessed 8 deficiencies by CMS. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they created a risk to resident health or safety. Finally, 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.
