Historical

Even though we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of B in nursing. The nursing score includes quite a few subcategories, many of which are associated with levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also factored a few quality-based metrics into our nursing grades. This place was relatively weak in two of the major areas we focus on, with below average scores for minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. These areas are generally reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care provided.

Historical

Incredibly, we gave this nursing home a grade of C for our short-term care grade, which isn't a bad grade. Our short-term care grade is typically employed to score a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to provide good rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to have better levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. The last metric we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 37.9 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Historical

As it turns out, this nursing home only earned a grade of D for its long-term care score, which is not a score to write home about. Nursing homes that don't fare well in long-term care typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine personal care we assessed. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 89.3491 percent of its residents. This is pretty significantly less than what we were hoping for. Lastly, we looked at its number of hospitalizations. Here we found that this place had 2.48 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, this figure is also alarming.

Historical

Turning our final category of inspections, this nursing home received a horrible grade. We would advise paying close attention to any deficiencies on a nursing home's inspection reports when it receives this bad of an inspection score. We suggest you scrutinize the severity of those deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with 6 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they caused a threat to patient health or safety. Lastly, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years totaling more than $100,000. This typically signifies that a facility's poor performance has been an issue for several years.
