Historical

Although we didn't rate this nursing home favorably overall, we did give it an excellent score in the area of inspections, where it received an A+. These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. In spite of this deficiency, this was still a relatively favorable inspection report.

Historical

Turning to the area of short-term care, this facility received just a D in this category. As it turns out, this proved to be one of its better features. In the area of short-term care, we seek to assess measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We look at a facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Not surprisingly based on its grade in this category, this nursing home was subpar in one of the two key staffing areas we looked at. It provided far fewer registered nurse hours per patient than most other facilities. The last metric we looked at in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 45.6 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these relatively poor statistics was damning for this facility's short-term care grade.

Historical

In addition, we gave this facility an F in the category of long-term care. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in long-term care it generally means the facility did not perform well in our quality measures relating to patient care. After we finished looking at the amount of nursing care, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. We were a bit worried that this facility vaccinated only 68.57143 percent of its residents for pneumonia. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1.31 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.

Historical

The last area we looked at was nursing. This facility was given a bottom of the barrel grade of F in this area. There are quite a few subcategories included in this area. Many of these data points reflect staffing levels. This nursing home offered only 3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. In addition to receiving below average scores for total nursing hours, this nursing home was a bit less impressive in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at in determining our nursing scores. We looked at the percent of residents sustaining pressure ulcers and found that this nursing home was at approximately 1.5 times the national average in this statistic.
