Historical

Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of C for our nursing rating. There are a variety of criteria within this category. Most of these datapoints reflect levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provided just 2.9 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This figure is significantly below average. Lastly, our nursing ratings also factor in quality-based measures, such as preventing major falls. Although this facility did not have as many nursing hours as many of the other facilities we looked at, it was still better than average in the area of avoiding falls.

Historical

As it turns out, this nursing home only received a D for its short-term care grade, which ended up being one of its more favorable category grades. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to evaluate measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Given its score in this area, we weren't stunned to find that this facility was well below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the metrics we looked at. The last item we assessed in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 37.6 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor metrics was damning for this facility's short-term care score.

Historical

We wanted to draw your attention to this place's inspection grade where it received an F. This often means we found red flags on the inspection reports. For facilities that received this bad of an inspection grade, we recommend scrutinizing any severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This facility was assessed 6 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they posed a risk to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility also received 35 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.

Historical

The final area we analyzed was long-term care, in which this facility was given an abysmal score in this category also. Sadly, it received a lowly F in this category, which is definitely very concerning. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in long-term care it generally means the facility didn't perform well in our quality measures relating to resident care. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Frankly, we were a bit worried that this nursing home administered the vaccine to a relatively low 60.958904 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.78 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.
