Historical

Although we gave this facility a terrible overall score, we gave it a grade of B- for short-term care. In computing our short-term care ratings, we look at a nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other types of therapists. This grade is more often than not a useful measure of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We were extremely impressed to find that this facility offers its patients substantially more physical therapist hours than most other facilities. The last measure we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. This place performed better than most facilities in this metric with 53 percent of its residents returning home.

Historical

This nursing home didn't perform horribly in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a C for that category. Other categories were the source of its abysmal overall grade. We would argue that one of the most important factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially focus on the severity of the deficiencies. This nursing home had 5 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were category G through L deficiencies. This indicates the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to present an imminent risk to resident health or safety. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.

Historical

This facility ended up receiving rock bottom score in our nursing category. It received an F in this category. There are a number of datapoints within this grade. Most of these criteria reflect staffing levels. This place offered just 3.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Unfortunately, this place also had terrible scores in several of the quality-based measures to pair with its weak nursing hours. We looked at the percent of residents experiencing pressure ulcers. This nursing home was at more than double the national average in this statistic.

Historical

The final area we scored was long-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it an F in this area, which is a bottom of the barrel score. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in this category it typically means the facility did not perform well in our quality measures relating to patient care. After we finished assessing the volume of nursing care, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. Candidly, we were a bit concerned this facility vaccinated a relatively low 68.36158 percent of its residents against pneumonia. We were stunned with the facility's hospitalization rate. We found that this facility had 3.88 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is more than twice the national average. This is definitely a concerning figure.
