Historical

Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of B- for our nursing rating. Our nursing score includes many components, many of which are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided just 0 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This figure is far below the national average. Lastly, nursing grades also factor in quality-based measures, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this place actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually an indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses aids to assist its residents.

Historical

This nursing home also didn't rate too badly in the area of short-term care. Indeed, we gave it a B- for that area, which wound up being another one of its higher scores. In our short-term care assessment, we try to forge a fair measure for rehabilitation. In this process, we assess the facility's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The tricky part is determining what effect this had on the quality of care. The final measure we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. It performed well in this area with 74.8 percent of its residents returning home.

Historical

We were also pleasantly surprised to find that this facility earned a solid long-term care rating in our assessment. We gave it a grade of B- in this category. Our long-term care grades are important for residents looking for non-healthcare services such as personal care. After assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. Candidly, we were a bit alarmed this nursing home vaccinated 72.13115 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is quite a few points less than what we expected. Fortunately, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 1.7 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home.

Historical

The final category we assessed is inspections. This facility didn't receive glowing inspections in recent years. As a result, we had to give it an F in this category. When a place has this poor of an inspection score, you should look for severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to resident safety. This particular nursing home was assessed one deficiency by government inspectors. Fortunately, it was not in a category that suggests that it posed a risk to patient health or safety. Finally, 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.
