Unfortunately, this nursing home did not earn a favorable inspection grade. We gave it just a D in this area. One of the more critical factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. We recommend you pay close attention to the level of severity of those deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with 3 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we found is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they posed a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, we want to point out that this facility was assessed significant government fines recently of more than $50,000. This generally indicates that inspectors grew tired after multiple years of failed inspections.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's least impressive area is long-term care, which is the last category we scored. We gave it a lowly F in this category. Even with some solid scores in other areas, this grade is nevertheless disappointing so we wanted to make sure you are aware. Facilities that do not score well in long-term care often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in some of the areas of routine healthcare services we assessed. Once we concluded our assessment of the amount of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the facility's vaccination data. Frankly, we were a bit concerned this nursing home vaccinated just 81.25 percent of its residents against pneumonia. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
