Historical

Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of C for our short-term care rating. Our short-term care ratings are meaningful for patients in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires additional highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a wide scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. We were surprised to find that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. The facility provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. It is important to determine whether this also correlates to a lower quality of care. The last datapoint we looked at in this area is the number of patients that eventually returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home performed better in this statistic. We found that it fared better than most nursing homes in this area with 54.6 percent of its patients returning home.

Historical

Turning to the area of long-term care, this nursing home was given a grade of just D in that category. Sadly, this proved to be its second best grade. For residents in need of a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are very important. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Fortunately, this nursing home vaccinated 96.68367 percent of its patients, which is a very solid figure. Finally, we looked at the facility's number of hospitalizations. With 1.91 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this place didn't fare quite as well.

Historical

This nursing home received very weak inspections in recent years, causing us to give them an F for inspections. An F in this category is usually a sign that there were red flags on the nursing home's inspections. For nursing homes with poor inspection grades, you should scrutinize any severe deficiencies found on their recent inspection reports. This nursing home was hit with 4 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we found is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they caused a risk to patient health or safety. Finally, we would like to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home was assessed large government fines in recent years amounting to more than $100,000. This often means that a nursing home's bad performance spanned several years.

Historical

The next area we graded is nursing. It received an abysmal F in this area, which is an abysmal score. Our nursing score is mostly tied to the nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home provided only 3.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is an alarmingly low total. On top of rating below average in nursing hours per resident, this place also had poor marks in the quality-based metrics we looked at in determining our nursing scores. We looked at the percentage of patients experiencing major falls and pressure ulcers. This nursing home was at approximately 1.5 times the national average in both of these statistics. This is a bad sign when you consider that many falls and bed sores are believed to be preventable with better nursing care. These metrics pulled down this nursing home's nursing grade quite a bit.
