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. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility had 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were in categories G through L. This tells you that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies to be an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

Remarkably, we awarded this nursing home a grade of C for our nursing rating, which isn't a bad grade. Nursing ratings are mostly based on a facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility actually excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. It performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Additionally, we gave this nursing home an F in the category of short-term care. Our short-term care scores are presumably most important for folks needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally utilizes more skilled nursing. This means not just nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Considering its grade in this area, we were not surprised to discover that this nursing home was well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the measures we looked at. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients that returned 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.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Moving on to the fourth category, this nursing home did not perform well in this category either. With a poor grade of F in long-term care, this is about as terrible as it gets. When nursing homes receive this kind of grade in this category it is a bad sign for resident care and it may indicate that the facility is not as well-staffed. Once we concluded our assessment of the volume of care provided by nurses, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. Frankly, we were a bit worried that this nursing home vaccinated a relatively low 81.95489 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
