Historical

While we didn't give this nursing home a good overall score, we did give it a very strong grade in nursing, where it earned a B+. We looked at the licensure of nurses employed by the facility, in addition to the quantity of time the nurses worked with patients, in determining our score in this category. This nursing home averages 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at certain nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these areas as good indicators of the caliber of nursing care being provided, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

This facilities next most favorable category was long-term care. We gave it a C in this area. This is basically a middle of the pack grade in this area. For patients looking for a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. Unfortunately, this nursing home vaccinated a relatively low 86.2069 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Unfortunately, this nursing home's hospitalization rate was also below average. We found that this nursing home had 2.74 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. While this figure is somewhat concerning, this number can be skewed for some nursing homes based on the medical complexity of residents

We also awarded this nursing home a decent grade in the area of short-term care, where we awarded it a C. In determining our short-term care ratings, we scrutinize a nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. This category is generally a useful assessment of the nursing home's rehabilitation. We found that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. It offered fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. It is important to determine whether this also correlates to a lower quality of care. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 22.2 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Turning to our final category of inspections, this facility received a grade that's as bad as it gets. We weight this category more heavily than our other categories. For nursing homes that received this poor of an inspection rating, we recommend scrutinizing any severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This nursing home was assessed one category J or K deficiency, which are among the worst deficiencies. This generally means that inspectors found a deficiency which places resident safety or health in immediate jeopardy. Lastly, we also want to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines recently of more than $100,000. This generally means that a facility's poor performance has been an issue for several years.
