Facility Inspections

Grade: A

While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a very impressive government inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our best grades in that category with a grade of A. Inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that CMS did not consider any of these deficiencies to be an imminent risk to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this facility's next best score was long-term care. Nevertheless, with a grade of D in this category, it still performed relatively poorly. For prospective patients in need of a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are a key measure. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Thankfully, this nursing home gave the vaccine to 98.6755 percent of its residents, which is a very respectable total. Surprisingly, this place also fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

We also wanted to draw your attention to this facility's poor nursing grade where it received an F. When calculating our nursing ratings, we assess both nursing hours and the training levels of the nurses. With just 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient per day, this place's nurse staffing levels were well below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This nursing home fared well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Switching gears to the last category, this nursing home did not fare well here either. Due to an abysmal grade of F in short-term care, this is about as bad as it gets. Our short-term care scores are based on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a vast scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. Considering its poor score in this category, we were not stunned to discover that this facility offers far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most nursing homes. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3.3 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
