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. We believe that one of the most critical factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. We especially focus on the severity of the deficiencies. This facility was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were category G through L deficiencies. This tells you inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to present an imminent risk to resident health or safety. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

This facility ended up receiving a an abysmal score in our long-term care area. It received a lowly F in this area. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in long-term care may not provide the kind of consistent 24/7 care that some other facilities provide. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 78.94737 percent of its patients. This is quite a bit lower than the national average. Surprisingly, this facility was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

In addition, we gave this facility an F in the area of nursing care. There are quite a few datapoints within this area. Most of the datapoints reflect the quantity of nurse staffing. This nursing home averaged just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This figure is quite a bit below the national average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these statistics to be measures of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we assessed is short-term care. It received an F for this area, which is a poor score. With our short-term care category, we try to craft a meaningful gauge for rehabilitation. In doing so, we look at a facility's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Considering its score in this area, we weren't stunned to discover that this facility was well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the figures we looked at. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. This was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 3.5 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
