Historical

We just couldn't find anything positive to say about this nursing home. It received just a just D in the area of nursing. Unfortunately, this ended up being its best grade. The nursing grade weighs many subcategories, however, the paramount one is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This facility provided 3.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is below the national average. On top of receiving below average marks for nursing hours, this facility was less impressive in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at in determining our nursing ratings. We looked at the percentage of residents sustaining pressure ulcers and found this place was at roughly 1.5 times the national average in this metric.

Additionally, we gave this facility a rock-bottom F in the category of long-term care. Facilities that don't score well in this category often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in some of the areas of routine medical care we looked at. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. As it turns out, this nursing home vaccinated just 56.818184 percent of its residents, which is slightly concerning. We were stunned with the facility's hospitalization rate. Here we found that this nursing home had 3.53 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is more than double the national average. This is definitely a concerning figure.

We also wanted to point out this nursing home's inspection score where it received an F. When a nursing home has this poor of an inspection rating, you should expect some severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to resident safety. This nursing home was hit with one category G through L deficiency, which are among the more serious categories of deficiencies. These categories indicate that the deficiencies found by the government inspectors had potential to pose actual harm to residents. Finally, this facility also received 58 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.

Historical

The next area we analyzed was short-term care. We gave it an F in this category, which is a bottom of the barrel score. Our short-term care grade is often employed to assess a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. To provide highly rated rehabilitation services, facilities generally must offer higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other types of therapists. In this place's case, we found that it offers far less registered nurse hours per patient than the average nursing home. Given its score in this category, this did not surprise us. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. This definitely was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 27.7 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, around half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
