Historical

While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a decent short-term care rating this year. We gave it a C in that category, which was the closest thing to a bright spot we could find for this nursing home. Short-term care scores are based on a nursing home's quantity of skilled nursing services. This means a wide range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. When we looked at this place's physical therapist hours, we found it provided more hours of physical therapy per day than most facilities. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 42.6 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this is below average.

One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing score. This turned out to be its second best category grade. In that category, we gave this nursing home an C. Our nursing category assesses many subcategories, most of which are tied to nursing hours. This facility provided just 3.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is generally a good indicator that a place has quality controls in place.

Sadly, this facility received a grade of just D in our inspection category. This is well below average grade. One of the more critical factors in assessing inspection reports is deficiencies. We would scrutinize the severity of the deficiencies. This facility had 5 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they caused a threat to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility also received 14 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.

Historical

The final category we analyzed is long-term care, where this nursing home was given a poor grade in this category also. Unfortunately, we gave it a lowly F for this area, which is definitely very concerning. Long-term care grades 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. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. We were a bit concerned this nursing home vaccinated 46.625767 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which happens to be quite a bit below what we were hoping for. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually decent at limiting hospitalizations. Although it had 2.21 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, its risk adjusted metric was not as bad due to it having more complex patients. This is its best feature in this category
