Historical

While we graded this nursing home incredibly poorly overall, it actually earned a very impressive government inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that area with an A. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively minor. This nursing home was assessed 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to create an imminent risk to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Historical

We were also pleasantly surprised to learn that this facility earned a solid short-term care rating this year. We awarded it a grade of C in this area. Short-term care grades are often employed to assess a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. To have highly graded rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to offer better levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the typical facility. The last datapoint we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. It performed much better in this area. We found it was above average in this metric with 54.3 percent of its residents returning home.

Historical

In addition, we gave this facility an F in the area of nursing care. Nursing grades are based largely on nurse staffing levels. This facility averaged only 3.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is well below average. Unfortunately, this facility also had terrible scores in several of the quality-based measures to go along with its low nursing hour totals. We looked at the percentage of residents experiencing pressure ulcers. This facility was at more than twice the national average in this statistic.

Historical

Moving on to the last area, this nursing home really didn't fare well in this category either. With a bottom of the barrel grade of F in long-term care, this is about as bad as it gets. When nursing homes receive this kind of score in this category it is typically a bad sign for patient care and it may indicate that the nursing home is not as well-staffed. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 83.650185 percent of its patients. This is multiple points below what we were hoping for. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 1.05 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.
