Facility Inspections

Grade: C

While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable inspection report this year. As a result, it received a decent grade in that category with a score of C. Our inspection scores account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. This nursing home was assessed 8 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were in any of the categories labeled G through L. This means that it avoided the more ominous categories of deficiencies. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Sadly, this nursing home's second most respectable category was long-term care. However, with a D in this area, it still fared somewhat poorly. Nursing homes that don't fare well in long-term care typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine medical care we assessed. After assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. Candidly, we were a bit alarmed this facility vaccinated 19.379845 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which happens to be several points lower than what we expected. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.05 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

We gave this facility a grade of just D for our nursing rating. When calculating our nursing grades, we assess both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the training levels of those nurses. This facility provided just 0.3 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 nursing home fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these statistics to be measures of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final category we looked at was short-term care. This nursing home was given a very poor grade of F in this area. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our objective is to formulate a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of various facilities. With its grade in this area, we were not surprised to find that this place was well below average in terms of the number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the measures we looked at. Honestly, this was what we expected here. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who eventually returned home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
