Historical

Although we gave this nursing home a terrible overall score, we gave it a grade of A for our inspections rating. This score is far more impressive than the facility's overall grade. Inspection scores are tied to several items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these reports. You should especially avoid facilities that have severe deficiencies associated with risks to resident well being. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Historical

We awarded this facility just a D for our long-term care rating and that actually turned out to be its next most respectable category. When facilities 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. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Frankly, we were a bit concerned this facility provided the vaccine to only 89.57143 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 1.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.

The next category we assessed is short-term care. This nursing home's was given an abysmal short-term care grade where it received a lowly F. In our short-term care grade, we try to forge a meaningful gauge for rehabilitation. In doing so, we assess the facility's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Based on its grade in this category, we weren't surprised to learn that this nursing home is well below average in terms of the number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we looked at. The last metric we looked at in this category is the number of patients who eventually returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 41.6 percent of its residents returning home.

Historical

Moving on to the final area, this facility really did not perform well in this category either. With a poor grade of F in nursing, this is really as as uninspiring as it gets. Nursing scores are heavily correlated with quantity of nursing care available. This particular nursing home offered just 2.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This figure is quite a bit below average. On top of receiving below average scores for nursing hours, this nursing home was less impressive in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at in calculating our nursing ratings. We looked at the percentage of patients sustaining pressure ulcers and found that this place was at roughly 150 percent of the national average in this statistic.
