Historical

While this nursing home's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually didn't perform terribly in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B- for that category, which is one of our better scores. We believe that one of the most critical factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. We especially focus on the severity of the deficiencies. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This means the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Lastly, this nursing home was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. This is generally a really bad sign. We would never recommend this facility.

Historical

We awarded this facility a grade of just D for our short-term care rating and that actually turned out to be its second most respectable score. In computing these short-term care scores, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The purpose is to devise a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Considering its abysmal grade in this area, we weren't shocked to learn that this place provides significantly fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most nursing homes. The last area we looked at in this area is the number of residents who returned home from the nursing home. It fared better in this area, with 50.3 percent of its residents returning home. This was just about this nursing home's only redeeming quality in this category.

Historical

Unfortunately, this facility only received a grade of D for its nursing grade, which was actually one of its better category grades. Our nursing score analyzes the facility's level of nurse staffing. We weigh both the levels of skill of the nurses and the amount of time spent with patients. This nursing home provides 3.1 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. To go along 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 grades. We looked at the percent of residents experiencing pressure ulcers and major falls. This facility had more pressure ulcers and falls than the average facility. This may be a bad sign when you consider that many falls and bed sores are preventable with better nursing care. These metrics hurt this nursing home's nursing grade significantly.

Historical

The last area we scored was long-term care, in which this nursing home received a very poor grade in this area also. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F in this area, which is definitely a major disappointment. If you are looking for services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care scores. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 99.03382 percent of its residents, which is better than the vast majority of nursing homes. To our surprise, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.73 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
