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 grades are based on many datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key item to look for on these inspections. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to the well being of residents. This place was hit with 10 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were in any of the categories labeled G through L. This means this facility dodged 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.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing rating. This proved to be its second best category grade. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of D. We weighed the licensure of nurses at the facility, as well as the quantity of hours those nurses worked with patients, in determining our score in this area. This nursing home averaged just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these datapoints to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We awarded this nursing home just a D for our long-term care grade. This is not a very good score. Facilities that receive this kind of score in long-term care likely don't provide the kind of consistent 24/7 care that some other nursing homes provide. One of the datapoints we considered after nursing hours is vaccines. Frankly, we were a bit worried that this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to just 80.56426 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this place actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last area we rated was short-term care. This nursing home was given an abysmal grade of F in that category. Short-term care ratings are based on the facility's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a broad range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Given its score in this category, we were not surprised to learn that this place is well below average in terms of the number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its patients based on the metrics we looked at. Honestly, this was about what we expected here. Finally, we assessed the number of patients that returned home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
