Historical

Even though we gave this facility a terrible overall score, we awarded it a B- for our nursing category. The nursing category is based on many datapoints, many of which are tied to nursing hours. This facility provided just 2.1 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place surprisingly fared better in some of the quality measures we looked at. In fact, it performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

Historical

This nursing home received a grade of just D in the area of inspections. Unfortunately, this ended up being its second best grade. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. We recommend you scrutinize the severity of the deficiencies. This particular nursing home was assessed 6 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they created a risk to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility also received 3 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.

Historical

Sadly, this facility only received a grade of D for its short-term care score, which is not one of our better scores. In determining our short-term care ratings, we look at the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. This area is more often than not a meaningful assessment of the nursing home's rehabilitation. Given its score in this category, we weren't surprised to learn that this nursing home is well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its patients based on the figures we looked at. Frankly, this was what we expected to find. The final metric we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar metrics sunk this nursing home's short-term care grade.

Historical

Moving on to our next category, this nursing home really did not perform well here either. Due to an abysmal grade of F in long-term care, this is about as bad as it gets. Long-term care scores in this range generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids, as well as the levels of routine medical care available. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 87.78878 percent of its patients. This is multiple points less than what we were hoping for. To our surprise, this place actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.67 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
