Historical

Although we graded this place incredibly poorly overall, it actually received a relatively impressive inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our better scores in that category with a B. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this place had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This tells you that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few 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 scores are primarily tied to the facility's level of nurse staffing. This place offered just 3.2 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. In addition to its subpar nursing hour totals, this place also earned poor marks in some of the quality-based measures we considered in computing our nursing scores. We found that more of this facility's residents sustained falls which led to major injury. We believe that many falls could be avoided with better nursing care. This statistic contributed to this nursing home receiving a poor nursing score.

Historical

Turning to the area of short-term care, this facility was given just a D in that area. Our short-term care ratings are believed to be more critical for patients requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically utilizes more highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The final item we considered in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 26.8 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics doomed this facility's short-term care grade.

Historical

The last area we scored is long-term care. This nursing home received a rock bottom grade of F in this area. When nursing homes receive this type of grade in this category it is a bad sign for resident care and it may indicate that the nursing home is not as well-staffed. Once we assessed the quantity of nursing care, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. Candidly, we were a bit alarmed this facility vaccinated only 82.916664 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 1.34 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
