Historical

While we graded this nursing home incredibly poorly overall, it received a somewhat respectable nursing grade this year. We gave it a C in this category. Nursing ratings are based in large part on quantity of nursing care available. This nursing home provides 3.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing score also includes relevant quality-based metrics. While this facility excelled in terms of quantity of nursing hours, it lagged a bit in some of the subcategories that focused on quality. This place's nursing grade was hurt by poor performance in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers. We found that 12.2 percent of this nursing home's patients experienced pressure ulcers. Since many pressure ulcers could be avoided with sufficient nursing protocols, we reduce a facility's nursing grade when we see this kind of prevalence of pressure ulcers.

Historical

We were also stunned to find that this facility earned a solid short-term care score this year. We awarded it a C in this area. Short-term care scores are based on the facility's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a broad spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy. This nursing home provides a decent amount of services from physical therapists and registered nurses based on our assessment. The last datapoint we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients that returned home from the facility. We found that just 37.8 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.

Historical

Among this place's worst category grades was an F for its inspection rating. More often than not, this indicates we found red flags on the facility's government inspection reports. For places that received this poor of an inspection score, we would scrutinize the severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This particular facility had a category L deficiency, which is the most severe category of deficiencies. This category means inspectors uncovered a widespread deficiency placing resident health or safety in immediate jeopardy. Even one deficiency in this category will really pull a facility's inspection grade down. 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.

Historical

The final area we looked at was long-term care, where this nursing home was given an abysmal grade in this area as well. We gave it an F for this area, which is definitely somewhat alarming. Facilities that do not fare well in this category typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine healthcare services we looked at. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. Frankly, we were a bit worried that this facility vaccinated 77.55102 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which happens to be significantly lower than what we expected. The last datapoint we assessed was the nursing home's hospitalization rate. Here we found that this nursing home had 1.84 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is a higher hospitalization rate than most nursing homes, but it's not as bad as we expected.
