Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

Although we gave this nursing home a horrible overall grade, we awarded it an A- for our inspections rating. This grade is far more impressive than the facility's overall grade. Our inspection scores are based on several items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these reports. Most importantly, you should avoid facilities that have severe deficiencies associated with risks to resident well being. 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.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

We also want to note that this nursing home received an F for its short-term care score. Our short-term care ratings are based on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a wide scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, in addition to other types of therapy. As you might expect, we discovered that this place provides significantly less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than a typical facility. The final datapoint we considered in this area is the number of patients who were able to return home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.5 percent of its residents returning home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

This facility ended up receiving rock bottom score in our nursing category. It received an F in this category. When determining a facility's nursing grade, we look at the number of hours nurses are seeing patients and the skill levels of those nurses. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This place performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these statistics to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next category we rated was long-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it an F in this area, which is a bottom of the barrel grade. Nursing homes that do not fare well in this category often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in a few of the areas of routine healthcare services we assessed. After assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination data. We were somewhat surprised to discover that this facility vaccinated just 65.11628 percent of its residents for pneumonia. To our surprise, this place actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
