Historical

Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of B- for our inspections rating. In fact, the facility received very impressive inspection report this year. We would argue that one of the most important factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. We especially look at the severity of the deficiencies. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Historical

Turning to the area of nursing care, this facility received a grade of just D in this category. Unfortunately, this ended up being one of its better grades. Nursing grades are primarily based on the facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home averaged just 2.9 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is an alarmingly low total. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This place fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Historical

As it turns out, this nursing home only earned a grade of D for its long-term care grade, which is not one of our better scores. Facilities that receive this kind of score in long-term care likely don't provide the type of consistent around the clock care that some other facilities provide. After assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. Unfortunately, this nursing home vaccinated only 90.87719 percent of its patients against pneumonia. To our surprise, this facility actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 1.05 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.

Historical

The final category we rated was short-term care. This facility received a poor grade of F in this category. In determining our short-term care grades, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our objective is to formulate a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Considering its grade in this area, we weren't surprised to find that this nursing home was well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its patients based on the data we looked at. Frankly, this was about what we expected to find. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who ultimately returned home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 44.1 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
