Historical

Although we did not rate this place favorably overall, we want to point out its relatively solid government inspections in recent years. We gave it a B+ in this area, which is much better than its overall grade. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite minor. While this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Historical

This facility's second most favorable category turned out to be its short-term care grade, where it was given a B-. In crafting these short-term care grades, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The goal is to create a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the typical facility. The final datapoint we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found it was above average in this area with 54.1 percent of its patients returning home.

Historical

Turning to the category of long-term care, this facility received a grade of just D in that area. For patients looking for a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 97.995544 percent of its residents. We were far less impressed with the nursing home's hospitalization rate. We found that this nursing home had 2.94 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is nearly double the national average.

Historical

The final area we looked at is nursing, in which this nursing home received a bottom of the barrel score here as well. We gave it an F in this category, which is obviously a major concern. The nursing grade includes several factors. The most important one is the amount of time nurses spent with residents. This facility offered just 3.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. To pair with its low totals in the area of nursing hours per patient, this nursing home also did not fare as well in the quality-based measures we looked at in calculating our nursing scores. We looked at the percentage of patients sustaining major falls and pressure ulcers. This place had more falls and pressure ulcers than the average nursing home. This may be a bad sign when you consider that many falls and bed sores are preventable with better nursing care. These metrics hurt this facility's nursing rating significantly.
