Historical

Although this nursing home's overall score was as bad as it gets, it fared pretty well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B+ for that category, which is one of our better scores. Inspection ratings are based on several pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key item to look for on these inspections. Most importantly, you should avoid facilities that have severe deficiencies associated with risks to resident well being. While this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Historical

Incredibly, we awarded this facility a grade of C for our short-term care grade, which isn't too bad of a score. Short-term care grades are generally employed to assess a facility's performance with rehabilitation. To offer quality rehabilitation services, facilities generally must offer higher levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. One reason for this facility's strong score in this category is that it provides more care with registered nurses to its residents than the average nursing home. The final item we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home, which is below average.

Historical

We gave this facility a grade of just D for our nursing rating. There are several subcategories included in this category. Most of these criteria are tied to the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. The problem with this facility was apparently more based on quality of care than quantity of care. Based on the data, it looks like this nursing home provides an above average 5.9 hours of nursing care per resident daily. Out of this total, nearly one quarter of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are one of the most highly trained levels of nurses. Despite being above average in terms of nursing hours, this facility had abysmal scores in some of the quality-based measures we looked at in calculating our nursing grades. For starters, we looked at the percent of patients sustaining pressure ulcers. This facility was at more than double the national average in this statistic. This is quite alarming when you consider that many bed sores are believed to be preventable with better nursing care. This ended up sealing the nursing home's fate of receiving a very poor nursing grade.

Historical

Switching gears to our next area, this nursing home did not perform well here either. Due to a very poor grade of F in long-term care, this is about as terrible as it gets. Nursing homes that do not fare well in long-term care typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine personal care we assessed. This facility's vaccination data weren't as favorable a few of its other data points in this area, such as its nursing hours data. It administered the pneumonia vaccine to just 41.044777 percent of its residents. We'd like to see some improvement in this area in the future. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.
