Historical

Although we gave this facility a horrible overall grade, we awarded it an A for our inspections rating. This grade is far more impressive than the facility's overall score. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite minor. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Historical

We awarded this nursing home just a D for our short-term care score and that actually turned out to be its next best score. In crafting our short-term care grades, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The goal is to devise a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different facilities. With its grade in this area, we were not surprised to find that this facility is well below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the data we looked at. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We were surprised to find that it performed better in this area, with 50 percent of its residents returning home. This was just about this nursing home's sole highlight in this area.

Historical

Unfortunately, we gave this facility an F for its nursing grade. Nursing scores are heavily correlated with quantity of nursing care available. This facility averaged only 3.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. To go along with its low totals in the area of nursing hours per resident, this place also did not fare as well in the quality-based measures we looked at in calculating our nursing grades. We looked at the percentage of residents experiencing pressure ulcers and major falls. This place had more falls and pressure ulcers than the average nursing home.

Historical

The final category we assessed was long-term care, where this nursing home was given a rock bottom score in this area also. We gave it an abysmal F in this area, which is obviously a major concern. For patients looking for a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. After assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 99.2629 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is higher than most nursing homes. Surprisingly, this facility was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 1.39 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
