Historical

While we graded this place incredibly poorly overall, it actually received a relatively impressive government inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our more favorable grades in that area with a B+. Arguably the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. It is typically in your best interest to avoid nursing homes that had a long list of deficiencies. While this place had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This tells you that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

We were also stunned to find that this nursing home received a solid short-term care rating this year. We awarded it a C in this area. With our short-term care category, we try to forge a sound gauge for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we assess the facility's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the typical facility. The final datapoint we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home performed better in this statistic. We found that it fared better than most nursing homes in this metric with 50.8 percent of its residents returning home. At most facilities, fewer than half of their short-stay residents are able to return home.

Historical

Sadly, this nursing home only received a grade of D for its long-term care grade, which is well below average in this category. For residents in need of a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 96.16519 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is higher than most nursing homes. Unfortunately, its hospitalization rate was not nearly as favorable. Here we found that this facility had 2.26 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a concerning rate.

The next area we analyzed is nursing, in which this facility received a poor grade here also. We gave it an abysmal F for this area, which is definitely a major concern. Nursing scores are heavily correlated with quantity of nursing care available. With a meager 2.5 hours of nursing care per resident each day, this place's nurse staffing levels were quite a bit below the national average. In addition to receiving below average marks for total nursing hours, this facility was a bit less impressive in some of the quality-based measures we looked at in computing our nursing ratings. We looked at the percentage of residents suffering pressure ulcers and found this facility was at approximately 1.5 times the national average in this metric. This is likely a bad sign when you consider that so many bed sores are preventable with better nursing care. Unfortunately, this statistic dragged down this facility's nursing grade significantly.
