Historical

While we gave this nursing home a terrible overall grade, we gave it a C for our short-term care rating. In the category of short-term care, we seek to assess measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We look at a facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The tricky part is determining what bearing this had on quality of care. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. This proved to be more of a strength for this facility. In fact, we found that it outperformed the majority of nursing homes in the nation with 53.3 percent of its patients returning home. This is a higher rate than most facilities.

Historical

Remarkably, we awarded this nursing home a grade of C for our nursing rating, which isn't a bad grade. There are numerous datapoints included in this area. Most of the factors are tied to nurse staffing. Based on the data, it looks like this nursing home provides an impressive 4.3 hours per patient on a daily basis. This is more nursing care than most places provide. In calculating our grades, we apply more weight to hours performed by more highly trained nurses such as registered or licensed nurses. Lastly, our nursing grades also factor in some quality-focused statistics. Specifically, we look at the percent of residents who sustained pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these statistics as predictive indicators of the quality of nursing care, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

Historical

Surprisingly, we gave this nursing home a C for our long-term care rating, which is not too bad of a score. Our long-term care ratings are more critical for residents needing more traditional assistance associated with activities of daily living. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 97.51909 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is more than the majority of nursing homes. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Although it had 2.81 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted metric was better than the majority of nursing homes since it had some more complex patients.

Historical

Turning the last category of inspections, this facility really did not fare well. It received an F in our inspection category. This is our most heavily weighted category in our overall grading system. With facilities that received this bad of an inspection rating, we would scrutinize any severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This particular facility was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we found is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they posed a threat to resident health or safety. Finally, CMS flagged this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. This is not what you want to see. We advise you to direct your search elsewhere.
