Historical

While we were not high on this facility overall, we awarded it an A+ for our inspections rating. This score is far more impressive than the nursing home's overall score. Our inspection grades weigh several factors found on a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid facilities with a bunch of severe deficiencies flagged. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even with this deficiency, this place still received a relatively positive inspection report.

One of this facility's more respectable category scores was in the area of long-term care. This wound up being its second most favorable category. In that category, we gave this facility a B-. In a long-term care setting, the primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Frankly, we were a bit worried that this nursing home administered the vaccine to just 83.97436 percent of its residents. Unfortunately, this nursing home's hospitalization rate was also below average. We found that this facility had 2.44 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Although this figure is somewhat concerning, this number may be skewed for some nursing homes due to the medical complexity of patients

We also wanted to draw your attention to this facility's poor nursing grade where it received an F. Nursing ratings are heavily correlated with quantity of nursing care available. This particular nursing home provided 3.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day, which is below average. On top of receiving below average marks for nursing hours, this nursing home was a bit less impressive in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at in calculating our nursing scores. We looked at the percent of residents sustaining pressure ulcers and found this nursing home was at approximately 150 percent of the national average in this statistic.

Historical

The next category we graded is short-term care, where this nursing home was given a rock bottom grade here also. Unfortunately, we gave it an F in this category, which is definitely a major concern. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to qualify indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We look at a facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists. In this nursing home's case, we found that it provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. This wasn't a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 36.2 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, about half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
