Historical

Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a B- for our inspections rating. In fact, the facility received very impressive inspection report this year. We would argue that one of the most important factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially look at the severity of the deficiencies. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Historical

We were also surprised to find that this facility received a decent nursing grade this year. We gave it a grade of C in that category. Nursing ratings are largely based on a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 3.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based metrics, such as minimizing major falls. This nursing home performed admirably in this area. Avoiding major falls is generally a good indicator that a facility has quality controls in place. Some falls can be prevented if a nursing home provides enough nurses to assist its residents.

Short-term Care Quality

Historical

We gave this facility just a D for our short-term care rating. This is not a score to write home about. Our short-term care grade is often employed to gauge a facility's rehabilitation services To have quality rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to have higher levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. It looks like this nursing home was subpar in several staffing areas we looked at. The facility offered fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most facilities. The final measure we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 44.2 percent of its residents returning home.

Long-term Care Quality

Historical

The next category we rated was long-term care, which is this facility's weakest area. We gave this facility a D in this category. When facilities receive a grade in this range in this category it generally means the nursing home did not perform well in our measures relating to patient care. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to just 72.47863 percent of its patients, which is quite a bit lower than we expected. Unfortunately, this nursing home's hospitalization rate was also a cause for concern. Here we found that this nursing home had 2.17 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an alarming rate.
