Facility Inspections

Grade: D

We really were not high on this place's overall score or its category ratings. We gave it a grade of just D for inspections and that turned out to be its best grade. Inspection grades weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they created a risk to resident safety or health. Lastly, we also need to point out that this facility received significant government fines of over $50,000. This typically suggests that inspectors became frustrated after several years of failed government inspections.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

This nursing home wound up receiving a a terrible grade in our short-term care area. It was given a lowly F in this area. In determining our short-term care grades, we size up the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other types of therapists. This grade is generally a fair measure of the nursing home's rehabilitation. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 40.5 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

We also wanted to draw your attention to this facility's poor nursing grade where it received an F. The nursing category consists of many datapoints, many of which are associated with nursing hours. With a meager 2.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day, this nursing home's nurse staffing levels were far below the national average. To pair with its low totals in the area of nursing hours per resident, this nursing home had really poor marks in several of the quality-based measures we looked at in determining our nursing ratings. For starters, we looked at the percent of residents having falls leading to serious injury. This facility was at more than 1.5 times the national average in this statistic.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next category we assessed is long-term care. This nursing home received an abysmal grade of F in this category. Nursing homes that do not fare well in long-term care typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine healthcare services we looked at. After considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination records. We were concerned by the fact that this nursing home vaccinated a relatively low 73.17073 percent of its patients against pneumonia. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 1.27 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.
