Historical

While we did not rate this facility favorably overall, we want to point out its much more favorable nursing score this year. We gave it a B in this area, which was much better than its overall score. When computing a nursing home's nursing grade, we consider the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the level of skill of those nurses. This nursing home provides 3.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at certain nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these datapoints as reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care provided, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

The next highest category we gave this facility in any category came in the area of long-term care, where we awarded it a B-. In our long-term care category, we assess the volume of care provided by a facility, along with a handful of quality datapoints. Once we finished looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. We were optimistic to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 1.63 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home.

Historical

We also awarded this facility a middle of the pack score in the area of short-term care, where we awarded it a C. Our short-term care scores are based on a nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a vast scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The key is determining what bearing this had on quality of care. The last item we considered in this area is the percentage of residents that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 39.1 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. This figure was below the national average.

Historical

Turning to our final category of inspections, this facility received a grade that's as bad as it gets. We weight this category more heavily than our other categories. For places that received this poor of an inspection rating, we would scrutinize the severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This particular nursing home was hit with 6 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they created a risk to resident health or safety. Finally, we also would like to point out that this nursing home received large government fines in recent years amounting to over $100,000. This typically signifies that a nursing home's poor track record spanned more than one year.
