Historical

Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of C for our short-term care rating. In calculating our short-term care scores, we analyze the facility's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This area is frequently a meaningful assessment of a facility's rehabilitation services. We found that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. In fact, it supplied fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. It is important to determine whether this also correlates to a lower quality of care. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients that returned home from this nursing home. This place performed respectably in this metric with 48.7 percent of its residents returning home.

Historical

One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing rating. In that category, we gave this facility an D. Nursing grades are largely associated with the nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 3.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day, which is below the national average. On top of receiving below average marks for nursing hours, this place was a bit less impressive in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at in determining our nursing ratings. We looked at the percentage of patients suffering pressure ulcers and found this place was at roughly 150 percent of the national average in this statistic. This is a bad sign when you consider that many pressure ulcers are believed to be preventable with better nursing care. This statistic dragged down this nursing home's nursing score significantly.

Historical

Unfortunately, this facility received an F for its long-term care score. Nursing homes that don't fare well in long-term care often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in a few of the areas of routine personal care we looked at. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination statistics. We were a bit concerned this nursing home vaccinated 84.23423 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which happens to be significantly less than average. Surprisingly, this nursing home was not as bad as we expected at keeping its residents out of the hospital. While it had 2.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted score was not bad since it had some more complicated patients.

Historical

Turning to our final category of inspections, this facility received a grade that's as bad as it gets. We weight this category more heavily than our other categories. For nursing homes with poor inspection ratings, you should focus on any severe deficiencies found on their recent inspection reports. This facility was hit with a category G through L deficiency, which are among the more serious categories of deficiencies. These categories indicate that the deficiencies uncovered by inspectors had potential to cause actual harm to patients. Another area of concern is that CMS flagged this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. This is not what you want to see. We advise you to direct your search elsewhere.
