Historical

While this place's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually didn't perform terribly in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of C for that category, which is one of our better scores. We believe that one of the most critical factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. We especially focus on the severity of the deficiencies. This facility was hit with 5 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but none were in any of the categories labeled J through L. This indicates CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies to put resident safety or health in imminent harm or jeopardy. Another area of concern is that CMS flagged this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. This is not what you want to see. We advise you to direct your search elsewhere.

Historical

Turning to the category of short-term care, this nursing home was given a grade of just D in that area. Sadly, this proved to be one of its better features. Our short-term care grades are important for individuals needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. This includes a broad range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. It looks like this place was below average in multiple staffing areas we looked at. In fact, it offered fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who returned home from this nursing home. This nursing home did not fare well here either. We found that just 45.5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Historical

Another concern was the F this facility received in the category of long-term care. When facilities receive this type of grade in this category it is often a bad sign for patient care and it may indicate that the nursing home is not as well-staffed with nurses and aids. After we finished assessing the volume of nursing care, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. Frankly, we were a bit concerned this facility vaccinated a relatively low 89.40397 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Finally, we looked at the nursing home's number of hospitalizations. Here we found that this place had 2.14 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, this figure is also a cause for concern.

Historical

Switching gears to the last area, this nursing home really didn't fare very well in this category either. With a bottom of the barrel grade of F in nursing, this is just about as bad as it gets. The nursing grade features a variety of factors. The most heavily weighted factor is the number of hours nurses spend with residents. This nursing home averages 3.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day, which is below the national average. To go along with its subpar totals in the area of nursing hours per resident, this facility also didn't fare as well in the quality-based measures we looked at in determining our nursing grades. We looked at the percent of patients sustaining pressure ulcers and major falls. This nursing home had more falls and pressure ulcers than the average facility. This could be a bad sign when you consider that many bed sores and falls are believed to be preventable with better nursing care. These metrics hurt this nursing home's nursing rating quite a bit.
