Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

While this place's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually fared well in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B+ for that area, which is one of our better scores. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. It is generally in your best interest to avoid nursing homes that have a long list of deficiencies. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the category of long-term care, this facility was awarded a grade of just D in this area. As it turns out, this ended up being its second best grade. When facilities receive this type of score in long-term care it is often a bad sign for resident care and it may mean that the nursing home is not as well-staffed. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 67.52412 percent of its residents. This is pretty significantly lower than the national average. Surprisingly, this facility was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had just 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

We gave this facility a grade of just D for our nursing rating. There are numerous factors included in this grade. Many of the factors relate to nurse staffing. This nursing home averaged just 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This nursing home performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last category we analyzed was short-term care, in which this nursing home was given a rock bottom score here also. It received an F for this area, which is definitely a major concern. In the category of short-term care, we seek to evaluate indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Considering its score in this area, we weren't surprised to find that this facility was well below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its patients based on the figures we looked at. Frankly, this was what we expected here. The last statistic we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents that returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4 percent of its residents returning home.
