Facility Inspections

Grade: C

While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable inspection report this year. As a result, it received a decent grade in that category with a score of C. We would argue that one of the most critical factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially focus on the severity of those deficiencies. This place was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were in categories G through L. This tells you that it dodged the more ominous categories 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

Sadly, we gave this facility an F for its short-term care grade. In the area of short-term care, we seek to assess measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We analyze a facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Considering its poor score in this area, we were not stunned to discover that this facility provides significantly fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most other facilities. The final metric we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to return home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.8 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was quite a bit below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

This facility ended up receiving rock bottom score in our nursing category. It received an F in this category. Nursing scores are tied to quality and quantity of nursing care. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This place fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last area we rated was long-term care. This facility was given an abysmal grade of F in this category. Long-term care scores in this range generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. One of the criteria we considered on top of nursing hours is vaccines. We were a bit worried that this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to only 64.53488 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.
