Facility Inspections

Grade: C

While this facility's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually didn't perform terribly in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a C for that category, which is one of our better scores. Inspection scores are tied to several items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key item to look for on these reports. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to patient safety. This facility had 4 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but fortunately none were category G through L deficiencies. This means that it avoided 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.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

This facility's second best category was nursing, but even there it received a grade of just D. This is still a well below average grade. The nursing score includes quite a few components, however, the paramount consideration is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This place offered only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is an alarmingly low total. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This nursing home fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this facility's next best score was short-term care. However, with a grade of D in this area, it still performed relatively badly. Our short-term care ratings are believed to be most important for residents requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not merely nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Considering its grade in this category, we were not surprised to learn that this facility is well below average in terms of the quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the figures we looked at. Frankly, this was about what we expected to find. Finally, we considered the number of residents that ultimately were able to return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 2.9 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next category we rated is long-term care. Sadly, it received an abysmal F in this category, which is a bottom of the barrel score. Facilities that do not fare well in long-term care often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in some of the areas of routine medical care we looked at. Once we concluded our assessment of the quantity of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. Frankly, we were a bit worried that this nursing home vaccinated just 88.54489 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
