Historical

While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable inspection report this year. As a result, it received a decent grade in that category with a score of C. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some are quite minor. This place was hit with 9 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were in categories J through L. This tells you the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to put resident safety or health in imminent harm or jeopardy. Finally, they also received 24 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is certainly not a great sign.

Historical

We were also surprised to discover that this facility received a decent short-term care rating in our assessment. We gave it a C in this category. Our short-term care grades are vital for people needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a broad scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. This nursing home elevated its grade in this category by offering more care from registered nurses to its residents than the average facility. The last statistic we considered 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 37.3 percent of this facility's patients returned home, which is below average.

Historical

This facility's next best category was nursing, but even there it received a grade of just D. This is still a well below average grade. The nursing grade is based on several subcategories, many of which are associated with levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 3.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day, which is below the national average. To go along with its low totals in the area of nursing hours per patient, this nursing home also didn't perform as well in the quality-based measures we looked at in determining our nursing scores. We looked at the percentage of patients experiencing major falls and pressure ulcers. This place had more pressure ulcers and falls than the average facility.

Historical

Turning to the last area, this nursing home really did not perform very well here either. With a very poor grade of F in long-term care, this is just about as terrible as it gets. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 80.71895 percent of its patients. This is many points below what we were hoping for. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1.65 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
