Historical

While this place's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually didn't perform terribly in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B- for that category, which is one of our better scores. These inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Historical

We were also pleasantly surprised to learn that this facility earned a decent long-term care score this year. We awarded it a C in this area. In a long-term care environment, the primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 95.01557 percent of its patients, which is better than the vast majority of nursing homes. The last statistic we looked at was its hospitalization rate. While it had 2.16 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted metric was not too bad.

Historical

Among this nursing home's several poor grades was its F in the area of nursing care. We analyzed the licensure of nurses employed by the facility, in addition to the quantity of time those nurses were with residents, in computing our grade in this area. This facility offered just 3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. This facility also had abysmal scores in several of the quality-based measures to pair with its low nursing hour totals. We looked at the percentage of residents experiencing pressure ulcers. This facility was at more than double the national average in this statistic.

Historical

The final area we looked at is short-term care. This facility was given a very poor grade of F in that area. Short-term care grades are often used to gauge a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to provide good rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must offer better levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. As you might expect, we learned that this facility provides substantially less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the typical facility. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. This was not a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 18.8 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. At most facilities, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
