Historical

We just could not find anything good to say about this place. It received a D in the area of long-term care. Unfortunately, this ended up being its best grade. When facilities receive a grade in this range in long-term care it generally means the facility did not perform well in our measures relating to patient care. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination statistics. Unfortunately, this nursing home vaccinated a relatively low 61.609905 percent of its residents for pneumonia. To our surprise, this facility was actually decent at limiting hospitalizations. While it had 2.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted metric wasn't as bad since it had some more complicated patients. This is its best feature in this category

Historical

This nursing home earned really poor government inspection reports in recent years, causing us to give them an F in our inspection category. An F in this category is generally a signal that we found some red flags on the facility's inspection reports. When a place has this poor of an inspection score, you should expect some severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to patient safety. This nursing home was assessed a deficiency on its inspection report. We were relieved to find that it wasn't in one of the categories that suggest that it caused a risk to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility also received 2 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.

Historical

Another unfortunate development is the F this facility was given in the area of short-term care. In our short-term care score, we seek to create a sound gauge for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we analyze the facility's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Given its grade in this category, we were not surprised to discover that this nursing home was well below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its patients based on the metrics we looked at. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who ultimately returned home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 36.3 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.

Historical

The final category we assessed is nursing. We gave it an F for this area, which is a poor score. In determining a nursing home's nursing score, we consider the number of hours nurses commit to residents and the levels of training of those nurses. This place averaged a meager 3.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This nursing home also had abysmal marks in some of the quality-based metrics to pair with its weak nursing hours. We looked at the percent of residents suffering pressure ulcers and we were very disappointed. This place was at approximately 1.5 times the national average in this metric. This is a bad sign in light of the fact that so many bed sores could be avoided with better nursing care. This statistic helped pull down this facility's nursing score significantly.
