Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

While we were not high on this nursing home overall, we awarded it a B+ for our inspections category. This score is much more impressive than the place's overall score. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home was hit with 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the government inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to resident health or safety. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facilities next most favorable category is long-term care. We awarded it a B- in this category. This is essentially a middle of the road grade in this category. If you are looking for services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care ratings. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 95.06315 percent of its residents, which is higher than the average nursing home. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Another unfortunate development was the F this nursing home was given in the area of short-term care. In our short-term care category, we strive to craft a sound barometer for rehabilitation. In doing so, we analyze a nursing home's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. With its weak score in this area, we weren't surprised to learn this place provided significantly fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most nursing homes. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 4.8 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Switching gears to the next category, this nursing home did not perform well in this area either. Due to a bottom of the barrel grade of F in nursing, this is really as terrible as it gets. Our nursing grade includes many components, but the paramount consideration is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This place averaged just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. To go along with its subpar totals in the area of nursing hours per patient, this place also didn't perform as well in the quality-based measures we looked at in calculating our nursing scores. We looked at the percentage of patients sustaining major falls and pressure ulcers. This facility had more falls and pressure ulcers than the average nursing home.
