Historical

We did not have any favorable things to say about this nursing home's overall score or its category grades. Its best category was long-term care. Nevertheless, with a D in this category, it still performed poorly. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. We were pleased to learn that this facility vaccinated 99.376945 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Lastly, we looked at the facility's number of hospitalizations. Here we found that this nursing home fared much worse with 4.98 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, this statistic is more than twice the national average.

Historical

Turning to the area of nursing care, this facility received a grade of just D in this category. Unfortunately, this ended up being one of its better grades. Our nursing grade is primarily tied to the facility's nurse staffing. This facility averaged only 2.8 hours of nursing care per resident each day. In addition to receiving below average marks for total nursing hours, this nursing home was less impressive in some of the quality-based measures we looked at in computing our nursing grades. We looked at the percentage of patients suffering pressure ulcers and found this nursing home was at roughly 150 percent of the national average in this statistic.

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. For facilities with bad inspection grades, you should focus on any severe deficiencies found on their recent inspection reports. This particular facility was assessed one category J or K deficiency, which rank among the worst categories of deficiencies. This generally means that inspectors uncovered a deficiency which puts resident health or safety in imminent danger. Finally, this facility also received 34 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.

Historical

Turning to the fourth area, this nursing home didn't fare very well in this area either. Due to a bottom of the barrel grade of F in short-term care, this is really as terrible as it gets. Our short-term care grades are thought to be more critical for individuals in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes additional skilled nursing. This means not merely nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Given its score in this category, we weren't surprised to learn that this nursing home was well below average in terms of the number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we looked at. Honestly, this was about what we expected to find. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents that who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 16.8 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
