Although this place's overall score was terrible, it actually performed pretty well in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B for that category, which is one of our better scores. These inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Surprisingly, we gave this nursing home a grade of C for our long-term care rating, which isn't a bad grade. Our long-term care grades are pivotal for residents seeking personal care. After assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. We were optimistic to learn that this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1.16 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes.

Historical

Tragically, this facility received an F for its short-term care grade. Our short-term care grades are based on a nursing home's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a broad scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. With a score of this caliber in this category, we were not surprised to learn this facility was below average in two of the key staffing figures we focus on. It offered substantially fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most nursing homes. The final statistic we looked at in this area is the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 31 percent of its residents returning home.

Historical

Turning to the fourth area, this facility really didn't perform very well in this category either. With a very poor grade of F in nursing, this is just about as terrible as it gets. There are a variety of subcategories within this category. Most of the factors reflect the quantity of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 2.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Unfortunately, this nursing home also had terrible scores in some of the quality-based measures to go along with its weak nursing hour totals. We looked at the percentage of patients sustaining pressure ulcers and we were very disappointed. This place was at approximately 1.5 times the national average in this metric. This is a bad sign in light of the fact that many bed sores could be avoided with better nursing care. This statistic helped pull down this facility's nursing rating quite a bit.
