Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

While this nursing home's overall grade was terrible, it performed well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B+ for that category, which is one of our better scores. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. It is generally best to avoid places that have too many severe deficiencies. This facility was hit with 8 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered severe. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to create an immediate threat to resident safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Sadly, this nursing home's next most respectable score was long-term care. However, with a grade of D in this category, it still performed relatively badly. When facilities receive this type of grade in this category it is a bad sign for resident care and it may mean that the facility is not as well-staffed. After assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were concerned by the fact that this nursing home vaccinated just 74.62235 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

We also wanted to draw your attention to this facility's poor nursing grade where it received an F. Our nursing grade analyzes the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We consider both the levels of training of the nurses and the quantity of hours spent with residents. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This place fared well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we scored is short-term care, in which this facility was given a very poor score in this category also. Sadly, it received a lowly F for this category, which is obviously somewhat alarming. Our short-term care grades are presumably more important for individuals needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically requires higher levels of skilled nursing. This includes not just nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. With its grade in this area, we were not stunned to discover that this place is well below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we looked at. Frankly, this was about what we expected here. The last statistic we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.3 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was quite a bit below average.
