Facility Inspections

Grade: A

While this nursing home's overall score was not a highlight, it actually really excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it an A for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to be an imminent risk to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Sadly, this facility's next most favorable score was short-term care. As it turns out, with a D in this category, it still fared relatively poorly. Short-term care ratings are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of skilled nursing services. This means a wide spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. With a score this poor for this category, we weren't shocked to discover this nursing home was well below average in several staffing areas we assess. In fact, it offered far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most facilities. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients that were able to return home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this facility's third highest category was long-term care. Nevertheless, with a grade of D in this category, it still performed relatively poorly. When nursing homes receive this type of score in long-term care it is typically a bad sign for resident care and it may indicate that the facility is not as well-staffed with nurses and aids. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Candidly, we were a bit concerned this facility gave the vaccine to just 62.23507 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The next category we assessed is nursing. We gave it an abysmal F for this area, which is an abysmal grade. The nursing rating is based on many data points. The most heavily weighted factor is the amount of time nurses spend with residents. This place offered only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these data points to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
