Historical

While we were not complementary of this nursing home's overall score, it actually earned an impressive nursing rating this year. We gave it a B+ in this category. Nursing ratings are based in large part on quantity of nursing care available. This nursing home averages 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at certain nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these areas as good measures of the caliber of nursing care offered, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

This facilities next best area is short-term care. We awarded it a grade of B- in this category. This is basically a middle of the pack score in this area. In the area of short-term care, we try to qualify measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 31 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well below average.

Historical

The next category we graded was long-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of B-. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were pleased to discover that this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Lastly, we looked at the facility's number of hospitalizations. We found that this nursing home had 3.24 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Although this figure is quite a bit higher than the national average, this number can be skewed for some facilities due to the preexisting medical conditions of residents.

Historical

Moving on our last category of inspections, this nursing home received an F in this area. Since this data is collected by independent government inspectors, we heavily weight poor results in this area. For nursing homes that received this bad of an inspection score, we would scrutinize the severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This particular facility had a category G through L deficiency, which are among the more severe deficiencies. These categories indicate that the deficiencies uncovered by the government inspectors had the potential to pose actual harm to residents. Finally, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this place received large government fines totaling over $100,000. This often signifies that a nursing home's poor performance spanned several years.
