Historical

Neither this place's overall score nor its category scores gave us anything positive to point out. Its best category was short-term care, but even there it received a lowly D. Our short-term care grade is commonly employed to assess a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. In order to have high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to feature higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. As you might expect, we discovered that this facility provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The last measure we considered in this area is the number of patients that returned home from the facility. This facility a bit in this area as well, with just 47.5 percent of its residents returning home.

Among this facility's alarming category grades was an F for its inspection grade. More often than not, this means we found some red flags on the facility's inspection reports. For places with poor inspection grades, you should focus on any severe deficiencies found on their recent inspection reports. This particular facility was hit with 6 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only favorable thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they caused a threat to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility also received 5 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.

Historical

We also wanted to draw your attention to this facility's poor nursing grade where it received an F. Our nursing score is based on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We look at both the levels of training of the nurses and the amount of time spent with residents. This facility averaged only 3.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. To go along with its low totals in the area of nursing hours per resident, this nursing home also did not fare as well in the quality-based measures we looked at in calculating our nursing ratings. We looked at the percentage of patients experiencing major falls and pressure ulcers. This place had more falls and pressure ulcers than the average nursing home. This may be a bad sign when you consider that many bed sores and falls are believed to be preventable with better nursing care. These statistics hurt this nursing home's nursing rating significantly.

Historical

Switching gears to the final category, this facility did not perform well in this category either. With a bottom of the barrel grade of F in long-term care, this is about as as uninspiring as it gets. For residents seeking a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Thankfully, this facility provided the vaccine to 98.88889 percent of its patients, which is a very solid figure. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.8 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
