Historical

While we graded this nursing home incredibly poorly overall, it actually earned a very impressive government inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our best grades in that category with an A. Inspection grades weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid nursing homes with a list of deficiencies flagged. While this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

This facility ended up receiving a an abysmal score in our short-term care area. It received a lowly F in this area. Short-term care scores are meaningful for people needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a broad spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Given its poor grade in this area, we weren't shocked to learn this nursing home offers substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most facilities. The final measure we looked at in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics doomed this nursing home's short-term care grade.

The third category we analyzed is long-term care. This facility's was given a low-end long-term care score where it received a lowly F. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 98.26087 percent of its patients, which is more than most nursing homes. To our surprise, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.77 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.

Historical

Moving on to the fourth category, this facility really didn't fare well in this area either. Due to a bottom of the barrel grade of F in nursing, this is just about as bad as it gets. Our nursing grade weighs quite a few subcategories, most of which are tied to quantities of nurse staffing. With just 2 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, this nursing home's nurse staffing levels were well below the national average. On top of being below average in nursing hours per resident, this facility also had poor marks in the quality-based metrics we looked at in computing our nursing grades. We looked at the percentage of residents sustaining pressure ulcers and major falls. This nursing home was at roughly 1.5 times the national average in both of these data points. This is likely a bad sign when you consider that many falls and bed sores are preventable with better nursing care. These statistics pulled down this facility's nursing grade quite a bit.
