Historical

Although we did not rate this nursing home favorably overall, we want to point out its nearly flawless government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A in this category. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Historical

This nursing home was given its next highest category grade in the category of short-term care. We awarded this nursing home a C in this area, which is a respectable grade. In the category of short-term care, we try to assess measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. This nursing home is above the national average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients. These are generally good indicators of quality short-term care. The last statistic we considered in this area is the number of residents who eventually returned home from the facility. We found that just 44.2 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.

Historical

As it turns out, this facility only received a D for its long-term care score, which is not an impressive grade. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids, as well as the levels of routine medical care available. After assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. We were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home vaccinated 71.35678 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which happens to be quite a few points lower than average. Surprisingly, this place was not as bad as we expected at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Although it had 2.3 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted score wasn't bad due to it having more complicated patients.

Historical

The next category we analyzed is nursing, which proved to be a weak spot for this nursing home. We gave this nursing home a grade of just D in nursing. In computing our nursing scores, we weigh both staffing levels and the training levels of those nurses. This particular place averaged a meager 2.9 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This number is far below the national average. To go along with its subpar totals in the area of nursing hours per resident, this nursing home also didn't fare as well in the quality-based measures we looked at in determining our nursing ratings. We looked at the percentage of residents experiencing pressure ulcers and major falls. This place had more pressure ulcers and falls than the average nursing home. This could be a bad sign when you consider that many bed sores and falls are preventable with better nursing care. These scores pulled down this nursing home's nursing grade quite a bit.
