Historical

While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it actually received a fairly impressive government inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our better grades in that category with a B+. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. It is generally best to avoid nursing homes that had too many severe deficiencies. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Historical

This facility excelled in the area of nursing, where it earned an D. Nursing scores are mostly associated with the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 3.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is slightly below average. Lastly, we also looked at a few quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place was above average in two of the statistics we focus on, with good marks for minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Historical

We gave this facility just a D for our long-term care rating. This is not an impressive grade. For prospective patients in need of a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are an important measure. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Thankfully, this nursing home gave the vaccine to 99.57806 percent of its residents, which is an above average datapoint. Surprisingly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 1.46 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.

Short-term Care Quality

Historical

The next category we rated was short-term care, ended up being this facility's weakest area. We gave this facility a grade of D in that area. Short-term care grades are typically employed to gauge a facility's performance with rehabilitation. To provide highly graded rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must feature higher levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. We found that this place was subpar in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the data we considered. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely was not a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 34.5 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
