Historical

While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable inspection report this year. As a result, it received a decent grade in that category with a score of B-. Our inspection scores are tied to pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these reports. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to resident safety. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Lastly, this nursing home was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. This is generally a really bad sign. We would never recommend this facility.

Remarkably, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B- for our nursing rating, which isn't a bad grade. Our nursing rating is primarily based on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This place provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this place performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically an indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place.

Surprisingly, we gave this nursing home a B- for its short-term care score, which really isn't a bad grade. Short-term care ratings are based on a nursing home's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a broad scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The final datapoint we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Historical

The next category we graded was long-term care. This facility received a bottom of the barrel grade of F in this category. When facilities receive a grade in this range in this category it generally means the nursing home did not perform well in our measures relating to resident care. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. Candidly, we were a bit worried that this facility vaccinated 87.69231 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is several points lower than average. Surprisingly, this facility actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
