Facility Inspections

Grade: C

Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a C for our inspections rating. In fact, the facility received very impressive inspection report this year. Our inspection ratings are based on many pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these reports. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to the well being of residents. This place had 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were in any of the categories labeled G through L. This tells you that it avoided the more ominous classes of deficiencies. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Tragically, we gave this facility an F for its short-term care score. With our short-term care assessment, we strive to forge a sound barometer for rehabilitation services. In this process, we analyze a facility's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Considering its grade in this area, we weren't stunned to find that this place was well below average in terms of the quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. Frankly, this was about what we expected here. The last metric we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics sunk this nursing home's short-term care grade.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we graded was long-term care. This facility's was given an unfortunate long-term care grade where it received a lowly F. Facilities that don't fare well in this category typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine personal care we looked at. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 70.491806 percent of its patients. This is quite a bit less than the national average. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The next category we rated was nursing. This nursing home was given a very poor grade of F in this category. The nursing grade includes quite a few subcategories, however, the main one is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility offered only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is an alarmingly low total. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing scores. This facility fared well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these metrics to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.
