Facility Inspections

Grade: B

Although we gave this facility a terrible overall score, we gave it a B for our inspections category. This is the result of the facility receiving a quality inspection report this year. Inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Despite this deficiency, this place still had a relatively favorable report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This facility's second most respectable category is long-term care, but it nevertheless received a grade of just D in that area. This ended up being a well below average score. For prospective patients seeking a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are an important measure. One of the factors we considered after nursing hours was vaccinations. Thankfully, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 96.52406 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We gave this facility just a D for our short-term care rating. This is well below average in this category. In the area of short-term care, we try to assess indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 4.6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

The final area we scored was nursing, which proved to be this nursing home's worst area. We awarded this nursing home a grade of D in this area. When calculating a facility's nursing score, we assess the quantity of hours nurses spend with patients and the level of licensure of those nurses. This nursing home averaged just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This figure is well below the national average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This place performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
