Facility Inspections

Oct 18: FNov 18: FDec 18: FJan 19: FFeb 19: FMay 19: B-
Historical

Although we were not high on this facility overall, we gave it a B- for inspections. This score is better than this facility's overall grade. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies an immediate threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this nursing home is what is known as a special focus facility. This is one of the worse labels CMS uses. It typically means that the facility has been flagged by CMS for substandard care. Hopefully, its performance improves in the future.

Historical

This nursing home actually received a decent grade in the area of nursing as well. We awarded it a grade of B- for that category, which is not a bad score. Our nursing grade is primarily based on a facility's level of nurse staffing. According to its CMS data, this facility provided an average of 5.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. Roughly one quarter of this care came from registered nurses, which are highly skilled nurses. Both of these figures are higher than average. Lastly, we also considered quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This facility was above average in two of the major metrics we focus on, including minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Short-term Care Quality

Historical

This facilities next most favorable category was short-term care. We gave it a B- in this category. This is essentially a middle of the pack grade in this category. In our short-term care assessment, we strive to craft a valuable barometer for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at the facility's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. When we assessed this facility's nursing hours, we found it offered substantially more care from registered nurses than most nursing homes. The last item we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who returned home from the facility. This place fared well in this area with 56.5 percent of its residents returning home.

Long-term Care Quality

Oct 18: DNov 18: DDec 18: DJan 19: DFeb 19: DMay 19: D
Historical

Turning to the fourth area, we gave this nursing home a D for the area of long-term care. This was the nursing home's worst category score. In a long-term care environment, the nursing home's primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination data. We were pleased to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 97.63314 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. While it had 1.85 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, its risk adjusted statistic was not bad due to it having more complicated patients.
