Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

This nursing home did not receive any favorable grades. In particular, we gave it an F in the category of long-term care. Nursing homes that don't fare well in long-term care typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine personal care we assessed. After assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. Frankly, we were a bit concerned this facility vaccinated 72.11268 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is quite a bit lower than the national average. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

We wanted to point out that this nursing home received an F for its inspection grade. An F in this category is particularly troublesome because it typically points to major red flags on the facility's inspection reports. When a nursing home has this poor of an inspection rating, you should expect some severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to the well being of residents. This facility was assessed 8 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they caused a threat to resident health or safety. Finally, we need to point out that this nursing home received large government fines in recent years amounting to more than $100,000. This generally suggests that a nursing home'sbad track record has been an issue for more than one year.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

We also wanted to point out that this nursing home received an F for its nursing grade. Nursing scores are mostly associated with the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home offered a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This statistic is well below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This place performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final category we assessed was short-term care. Sadly, it received a lowly F in this category, which is a rock bottom score. Short-term care grades are typically used to judge a facility's rehabilitation services. To offer highly scored rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must provide higher levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. With a score of this caliber in this area, we were not stunned to discover that this facility was below average in many staffing areas we focus on. The facility supplied significantly fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most other nursing homes. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.3 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
