While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it actually received an impressive government inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our best grades in that category with an A+. Inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this place had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

This facility wound up receiving a rock-bottom score in our long-term care area. It received a lowly F in this area. Facilities that do not fare well in long-term care typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine personal care we assessed. One of the statistics we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccines. Candidly, we were a bit worried that this facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to just 27.377522 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this facility was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 1.53 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.

Another issue is the F this nursing home received in the area of short-term care. Our short-term care ratings are important for patients requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a wide range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. With a score this poor in this area, we were not shocked to discover this nursing home was well below average in several staffing areas we focus on. It provided significantly fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely wasn't a strength for this facility. We found that just 44.6 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, around half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.

Historical

Switching gears to the fourth category, this facility did not perform very well in this area either. Due to a poor grade of F in nursing, this is just about as bad as it gets. Nursing grades are based in large part on quality and quantity of nursing care. This facility provided a meager 2.8 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This figure is quite a bit below the national average. To pair with its subpar totals in the area of nursing hours per resident, this facility also didn't fare as well in the quality-based measures we looked at in determining our nursing ratings. We looked at the percentage of residents sustaining major falls and pressure ulcers. This nursing home had more pressure ulcers and falls than the average facility.
