Facility Inspections

Grade: C

Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a C for our inspections rating. In fact, the facility received very impressive inspection report this year. Inspection scores weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This place was assessed 8 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were in category J, K or L. This indicates that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to place resident health or safety in immediate harm or jeopardy. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received some government fines in recent years.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this nursing home's next best score is long-term care. Nevertheless, with a D in this area, it still performed relatively poorly. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Thankfully, this facility vaccinated 99.07407 percent of its residents, which is a very solid datapoint. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

In addition, we gave this facility an F in the area of nursing care. When calculating a facility's nursing grade, we look at the number of hours nurses are with residents and the level of licensure of those nurses. This nursing home offered only 0.1 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is not a very impressive figure. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing scores. This place performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be measures of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last category we assessed was short-term care. This nursing home received a rock bottom grade of F in this category. In determining our short-term care grades, we scrutinize a facility's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other types of therapists. This grade is more often than not a reliable measure of a facility's rehabilitation services. Not surprisingly, we found that this facility provides far less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than a typical facility. The final measure we considered in this area is the number of residents that eventually returned home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.8 percent of its residents returning home.
