Historical

While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable nursing grade this year. We gave it a grade of B- in that category. Our nursing rating assesses quite a few factors, but the paramount one is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. Based on the data, it looks like this nursing home provides an impressive 3.9 hours per resident daily. This is more nursing care than most nursing homes provide. In computing our grades, we apply more weight to hours performed by more highly trained nurses such as registered or licensed nurses. Lastly, we also weighed some quality-based measures. This nursing home fared well in a few of the quality-based metrics we assessed. By way of illustration, in terms of the percentage of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, this place beat the national average. This is usually a reliable indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented with better nursing care.

Historical

We were also surprised to learn that this nursing home received a decent short-term care rating in our assessment. We gave it a B- in this category. Our short-term care ratings are likely more meaningful for folks in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not just nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. We were pleased to find that this nursing home employs both registered nurses and physical therapists. The same can't be said for all nursing homes. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Historical

Additionally, we gave this facility an F in the category of long-term care. Facilities that receive this type of grade in long-term care likely don't provide the type of consistent 24/7 care that some other facilities offer. While we determined this facility has an impressive amount of nursing hours provided by nurses aids and other nursing staff, we found its vaccine statistics to be a bit low. It administered the pneumonia vaccine to just 80.985916 percent of its patients. This is a statistic we would love to see this facility bring up. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 1.34 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.

Historical

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. We would advise paying close attention to any deficiencies on a facility's inspection reports when it receives this bad of an inspection score. We would scrutinize the severity of the deficiencies. This facility had one category J or K deficiency, which are among the worst deficiencies. We are also concerned by the fact that this facility was flagged by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We prefer to avoid facilities with this designation. Please do your best to find an alternative nursing home.
