Historical

While this nursing home's overall score was not a highlight, it actually really excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it an A+ for that area, which is one of our highest scores. Inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

This nursing home's next most favorable area came in the area of long-term care. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a C. Long-term care scores are based on a nursing home's quantity of nursing care. This means a broad range of personal care services, ranging from assistance with activities of daily living to routine healthcare services. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We found that this facility gave the vaccine to a relatively low 9.523809 percent of its patients, which is not a very encouraging sign. Nevertheless, this facility excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Our next category we looked at is short-term care, in which this facility was given an F. With our short-term care assessment, we seek to create a valuable measure for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we analyze a facility's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Based on its grade in this area, we weren't stunned to learn that this place was well below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its patients based on the figures we looked at. Finally, we considered the number of residents that who were able to eventually return home from this facility. This facility did not fare well here either. We found that just 45.3 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was below average.

Historical

Switching gears to the fourth category, this nursing home didn't perform well in this category either. Due to a very poor grade of F in nursing, this is just about as terrible as it gets. Our nursing score assesses the facility's level of nurse staffing. We consider both the levels of training of those nurses as well as the number of hours spent with residents. With a meager 3.2 hours of nursing care per resident daily, this place's nurse staffing levels were quite a bit below the national average. To go along with its below average total nursing hours per patient, this facility had bad scores in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at in determining our nursing scores. For starters, we looked at the percentage of patients having falls leading to serious injury. This nursing home was at more than 1.5 times the national average in this statistic. This is concerning in light of the fact that so many falls could likely be prevented with better nursing care. This ended up sealing the facility's fate of earning a poor nursing score.
