Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Although we gave this place a terrible overall score, we awarded it a B+ for our inspections category. This is the result of the facility receiving a decent inspection report this year. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. It is generally best to avoid nursing homes that had a long list of severe deficiencies. 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.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the category of long-term care, this facility was given a grade of just D in that area. Sadly, this proved to be one of its better features. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. We were disappointed to learn that this nursing home vaccinated only 73.154366 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

We were stunned to find that this facility also excelled in nursing. In fact, we awarded it a score of D for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Nursing ratings are heavily correlated with nurse staffing levels. This facility averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is well below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This facility fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these datapoints to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Switching gears to the next area, this facility really did not fare very well in this category either. With a poor grade of F in short-term care, this is about as as uninspiring as it gets. Our short-term care scores are probably most meaningful for folks in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically utilizes additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not only nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Considering its abysmal rating in this area, we weren't shocked to find this nursing home offered substantially fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
