Historical

Although we did not rate this nursing home favorably overall, we want to point out its nearly flawless government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A in this category. Our inspection ratings account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid nursing homes with a bunch of deficiencies flagged. This place received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that CMS did not deem any of these deficiencies to create an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Sadly, this nursing home's next highest score is long-term care. As it turns out, with a grade of D in this area, it still fared relatively poorly. When nursing homes receive this kind of grade in long-term care it is a bad sign for patient care and it may indicate that the nursing home is not as well-staffed with nurses and aids. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Candidly, we were a bit alarmed this nursing home administered the vaccine to a relatively low 87.36842 percent of its patients. The last datapoint we looked at was the nursing home's hospitalization rate. We found that this nursing home had 1.82 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is a higher hospitalization rate than the average nursing home, but it is not as bad as we feared it might be.

Historical

Among this nursing home's several poor grades was its F in the area of nursing care. The nursing score analyzes a handful of components, many of which are tied to nursing hours. This particular nursing home provided 3.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day, which is below average. Unfortunately, this place also had abysmal marks in some of the quality-based metrics to pair with its weak nursing hour totals. We looked at the percentage of residents suffering pressure ulcers and we were disappointed. This nursing home was at approximately 150 percent of the national average in this statistic. This is likely a bad sign when you consider that so many pressure ulcers could be avoided with better nursing care. This metric helped pull down this facility's nursing rating significantly.

Historical

Turning to the next area, this nursing home didn't perform well in this category either. With a poor grade of F in short-term care, this is really as terrible as it gets. Our short-term care grades are presumably more critical for folks needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually mandates higher levels of skilled nursing. This includes not only nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. As you might expect, we found that this place provides significantly less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the typical nursing home. The final datapoint we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 34.1 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was well below average.
