Facility Inspections

Grade: B

Although this place's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually performed well in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B for that area, which is one of our better scores. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Unfortunately, this place was hit with a category L deficiency, which was unexpected given its inspection grade. This category of deficiency means inspectors identified a widespread deficiency placing resident health or safety in immediate jeopardy. Even a single deficiency in this category is concerning. While other aspects of this nursing home's inspection report were favorable, we have some reservations.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to the category of long-term care, this facility was given a grade of just D in this area. Sadly, this wound up being one of its better features. In a long-term care setting, the primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 99.45055 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is more than the majority of nursing homes. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Additionally, we gave this nursing home an F in the area of short-term care. In determining our short-term care ratings, we scrutinize a nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other types of therapists. This score is frequently a solid assessment of the facility's rehabilitation services. Given its grade in this category, we were not surprised to learn that this nursing home was well below average in terms of the quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we looked at. Frankly, this was what we expected to find. Lastly, we considered the number of residents that who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The next area we rated was nursing, in which this nursing home received a rock bottom grade in this category as well. Sadly, it received a lowly F in this area, which is obviously a major concern. When computing our nursing scores, we look at both nursing hours and the skill levels of the nurses. This nursing home averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is not a very impressive figure. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This place performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
