Historical

Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a B- for our inspections rating. In fact, the facility received very impressive inspection report this year. We believe that one of the most important factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. We especially look at the severity of the deficiencies. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.

Historical

This facility also didn't fare too badly in the area of long-term care. Indeed, we gave it a B- for that category, which happens to be among its better grades. For residents in need of a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are very important. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Fortunately, this nursing home gave the vaccine to 96.40288 percent of its patients, which is a very respectable percentage. The last datapoint we looked at was the nursing home's hospitalization rate. Here we found that this facility had 1.88 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is not too far off the national average.

Historical

This nursing home also didn't perform terribly in the area of nursing. In fact, we awarded it a grade of C for that category, which is another one its better scores. Our nursing grade features a host of datapoints. The most heavily weighted variable is the quantity of hours nurses spent with patients. This nursing home provides 3.1 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. While this facility didn't really impress in terms of the quantity of nursing care available, it actually performed admirably in a few of our quality-based metrics. In fact, it was above average in two of the statistics we assess, with favorable scores for minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. These statistics are reliable measures of the quality of nursing care offered since many bed sores and falls can be avoided.

Historical

The final category we rated is short-term care, was this facility's least impressive area. We gave this nursing home a D in this area. In calculating our short-term care grades, we look at a facility's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other types of therapists. This area is frequently a useful assessment of the nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. Given its poor score in this category, we were not stunned to find that this nursing home provided far fewer registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The last datapoint we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 38.6 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. This statistic was damning for this facility's short-term care grade.
