Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

Although we did not rate this nursing home highly overall, we want to point out its excellent government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A+ in this category. Our inspection grades account for a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid nursing homes with a bunch of severe deficiencies flagged. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facility's short-term care rating turns out to be one of its more favorable features. The facility was given a C in this area. Our short-term care scores are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of skilled nursing services. This includes a wide scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, in addition to other types of therapy. Unfortunately, this facility was below average in terms of its number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. The last measure we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The third area we assessed is long-term care. This nursing home's was given a bottom of the barrel long-term care score where it was given a lowly F. Nursing homes that receive this kind of grade in long-term care may not provide the type of consistent 24/7 care that some other nursing homes offer. Once we finished looking at the amount of care provided by nurses, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. We were a bit alarmed this facility vaccinated just 46.468403 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Switching gears to the final category, this facility really did not fare very well here either. Due to an abysmal grade of F in nursing, this is really as as uninspiring as it gets. Our nursing rating looks at the facility's nurse staffing levels. We look at both the levels of licensure of the nurses as well as the number of hours spent with residents. 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. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
