Facility Inspections

Grade: C

While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable inspection report this year. As a result, it received a decent grade in that category with a score of C. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection ratings. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are quite minor. This nursing home was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were in categories G through L. This tells you that this facility dodged the more significant classes of deficiencies. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing score. In that area, we awarded this nursing home an C. Our nursing grade analyzes the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We factor in both the levels of training of the nurses as well as the number of hours spent with patients. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This figure is far below the national average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics. Although this nursing home got docked a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it excelled in some of these quality-based metrics. With less than five percent of its residents experiencing pressure ulcers, it fared well in this statistic. This is often an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of turning a resident more often.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Tragically, we gave this facility an F for its short-term care score. In determining our short-term care scores, we look at the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. This area is considered to be a useful measure of the facility's rehabilitation. Not surprisingly, we found that this facility provides substantially less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the typical nursing home. The last metric we assessed in this area is the number of patients who returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 3 percent of its patients returning home. This was quite a bit below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last area we assessed was long-term care, in which this nursing home was given a poor score in this area as well. Unfortunately, we gave it an F for this category, which is definitely very concerning. Facilities that don't fare well in this category typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine healthcare services we looked at. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination records. Candidly, we were a bit concerned this nursing home vaccinated 87.80488 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is several points lower than what we were hoping for. Surprisingly, this facility was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
