Facility Inspections

Grade: A

While we were not high on this facility's overall grade, it received a very impressive inspection report this year. In fact, it received an excellent inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest scores in that category with an A. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. It is typically best to avoid nursing homes that have a long list of severe deficiencies. This facility was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered severe. This means that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Sadly, this facility only received a grade of D for its long-term care grade, which was actually one of its higher category scores. If you are seeking anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care scores. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. We were pleased to find that this facility vaccinated 99.25926 percent of its residents against pneumonia. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Sadly, this facility only earned a grade of D for its short-term care grade, which is not one of our better scores. Our short-term care grade is commonly employed to assess a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation In order to provide highly rated rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to feature better levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. Considering its weak score in this area, we were not shocked to find that this nursing home offers substantially fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most nursing homes. The final datapoint we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 0 percent of its patients returning home. This was well below the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Moving on to our next area, this facility really did not fare very well here either. Due to a very poor grade of F in nursing, this is about as bad as it gets. Our nursing score is based on numerous subcategories. The most heavily weighted variable is the number of hours nurses spent with patients. This facility provided just 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This place performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
