Historical

While this place's overall score was terrible, it actually performed well in our short-term care rating. In fact, we gave it a B+ for that category, which is one of our higher scores. This is one of the only good things we can say about this nursing home. In our short-term care score, we seek to forge a sound barometer for rehabilitation. In this process, we assess the facility's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Unfortunately, we weren't able to find information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The final statistic we considered in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Historical

This nursing home excelled in the area of nursing, where it received an B-. Few places fared better in this area. Our nursing rating is largely tied to the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This figure is far below the national average. On top of ranking poorly in terms of nursing hours provided, this place also lagged behind in certain datapoints that are associated with quality of care. This nursing home's nursing score was pulled down by poor performance in the area of minimizing pressure ulcers. We found that 28.2 percent of this place's residents were suffering from pressure ulcers. This is at least double the national average. Since many pressure ulcers could be avoided with proper nursing protocols, we reduce a nursing home's nursing score when we find this kind of prevalence of pressure ulcers.

Historical

Unfortunately, this nursing home received really poor government inspection reports in recent years, causing them to receive an F for inspections. An F in this category is typically a signal that there were some red flags on the facility's inspections. When a place has this poor of an inspection grade, you should expect some severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to patient safety. This particular facility had a category J or K deficiency, which rank among the worst categories of deficiencies. Lastly, we also would like to draw your attention to the fact that this facility was assessed significant government fines in recent years totaling more than $100,000. This generally indicates that a poor performance spanned more than one year.

Historical

The last area we assessed is long-term care, in which this facility was given an abysmal score here as well. We gave it a lowly F in this area, which is obviously a major concern. In a long-term care environment, the primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. One of the criteria we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Thankfully, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
