Facility Inspections

Grade: D

Sadly, we did not have any favorable things to say about this place's overall grade or its category grades. Its best area was the category of inspections. However, with a D in this category, it still performed relatively poorly. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. We recommend you scrutinize the severity of the deficiencies. This facility was assessed 3 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we can say is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they caused a threat to resident health or safety. Lastly, we want to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines recently of more than $50,000. This often signifies that government inspectors became fed up after multiple years of failed health inspections.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. In fact, nursing proved to be its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of F. Nursing ratings are tied to quantity of nursing care available. This nursing home provides 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This place fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The third category we assessed is short-term care, where this nursing home was given an F. In computing our short-term care grades, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The goal is to formulate a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The final measure we looked at in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.7 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar metrics doomed this nursing home's short-term care grade.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final category we rated was long-term care. Sadly, it received a lowly F in this category, which is a poor score. When facilities receive a grade in this range in long-term care it generally means the nursing home didn't perform well in our measures relating to resident care. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to just 89.68513 percent of its residents, which is a bit of a concern. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.
