Historical

Even though we didn't give this nursing home a good overall grade, we gave it a strong grade in the category of short-term care, where it earned a grade of B+. This is better than most nursing homes in this area. To some extent, this propped up an otherwise abysmal profile. Our short-term care ratings are considered to be more meaningful for those needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. One reason for this facility's strong score in this category is that it provides more care with registered nurses to its residents than the average nursing home. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from this facility. We found that it performed better than most nursing homes in the country in this area with 51.1 percent of its patients returning home.

We also gave this facility a strong grade in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B. This is better than most nursing homes in this category. Our nursing score is primarily associated with a nursing home's nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 3.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Historical

Sadly, this facility received a grade of just D in our inspection category. This is well below average grade. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. We would pay close attention to the level of severity of the deficiencies. This facility was hit with a category G through L deficiency, which are among the more serious categories of deficiencies. This generally indicates that the deficiencies uncovered by CMS had potential to create actual harm to patients. Finally, this facility also received 9 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.

Historical

The next area we scored was long-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F in this area, which is a very poor score. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in this category it generally means the nursing home did not perform well in our quality measures relating to patient care. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Frankly, we were a bit concerned this facility vaccinated only 85.11905 percent of its residents. We were also disappointed with the facility's hospitalization rate. We found that this facility had 3.05 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is nearly twice the national average.
