Historical

While this facility's overall grade was horrible, it actually didn't perform quite as poorly in long-term care. We gave it a B- for that category, which isn't bad. This was not enough to salvage its otherwise poor profile. Long-term care grades assess a facility's assistance with daily living instead of the skilled nursing or medical services that are critical to a skilled nursing facility. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Thankfully, this facility provided the vaccine to 97.940506 percent of its residents, which is a very solid percentage. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1.66 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes.

Historical

This place earned a D in the area of inspections. Sadly, this was its second best score. One of the most significant factors in evaluating inspection reports is deficiencies. We recommend you scrutinize the level of severity of those deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with 6 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they posed a threat to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.

Historical

This facility ended up receiving rock bottom score in our nursing category. It received an F in this category. Our nursing score considers a variety of subcategories. The most heavily weighted factor is the number of hours nurses spend with residents. This facility averaged a meager 2.7 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is not a very impressive figure. Unfortunately, this nursing home also had abysmal marks in several of the quality-based metrics to pair with its weak nursing hours. We looked at the percentage of patients experiencing pressure ulcers. This nursing home was at more than double the national average in this metric.

Historical

Turning to the last area, this nursing home did not perform very well here either. Due to a rock bottom grade of F in short-term care, this is just about as as uninspiring as it gets. Short-term care grades are commonly used to judge a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To offer highly scored rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to feature higher levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other types of therapists. Given its abysmal grade in this category, we weren't shocked to find this facility provides far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most nursing homes. The final metric we assessed in this area is the number of residents that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 15.7 percent of its patients returning home.
