Facility Inspections

Grade: B

While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it actually received a fairly impressive inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our better scores in that area with a grade of B. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively minor. While this place had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home excelled in the area of nursing, where it earned an C. Few facilities fared better in this area. Nursing scores are tied to quantity of nursing care available. This place provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a somewhat discouraging figure which is well below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place surprisingly excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. In fact, it performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We awarded this nursing home just a D for our long-term care rating. This is not one of our better scores. Nursing homes that don't fare well in this category often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in a few of the areas of routine medical care we assessed. One of the criteria we considered after nursing hours is vaccines. Frankly, we were a bit alarmed this facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to just 24.89992 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next category we assessed is short-term care. This facility received a very poor grade of F in this category. Our short-term care grades are probably more meaningful for patients needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires higher levels of skilled nursing services. This includes not merely nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The last item we considered in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 3.8 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar statistics doomed this facility's short-term care grade.
