Historical

Even though we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we gave it a B- for our long-term care rating. In the area of long-term care, we focus more on the quantity of services offered by a facility, as opposed to more sophisticated services. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 91.25561 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is a bit less than we were hoping for but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. The last statistic we assessed was its hospitalization rate. We found that this facility had 1.98 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is also slightly below average.

Historical

Among this nursing home's several poor grades was its F in the area of nursing care. Nursing ratings are mostly based on a facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 3.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. To go along with its low totals in the area of nursing hours per patient, this facility also did not perform as well in the quality-based measures we looked at in computing our nursing ratings. We looked at the percentage of patients sustaining pressure ulcers and major falls. This facility had more falls and pressure ulcers than the average facility.

Historical

Among this facility's alarming category grades was an F for its inspection grade. More often than not, this means we found some red flags on the facility's inspection reports. When a place has this bad of an inspection rating, you should expect some severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to the well being of residents. This nursing home had 4 deficiencies by CMS. The only positive thing we can say is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they posed a threat to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility also received 2 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.

Historical

The final category we scored was short-term care, where this nursing home received a rock bottom score in this category as well. Sadly, it received an abysmal F for this category, which is obviously a major disappointment. In the area of short-term care, we try to evaluate indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. With a score this poor in this category, we were not shocked to discover this facility was well below average in two of the key staffing areas we assess. In fact, it provided substantially fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most nursing homes. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 11.9 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
