Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a very impressive inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our best scores in that area with an A-. Our inspection grades account for several factors found on a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid facilities with a bunch of deficiencies flagged. This particular nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Among this nursing home's several abysmal scores was its F in the area of short-term care. Short-term care scores are vital for residents in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing services. This means a wide scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. With its score in this category, we were not stunned to discover that this facility was well below average in terms of the quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its residents based on the measures we assessed. Honestly, this was about what we expected here. The last measure we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 3.4 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was quite a bit below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The third category we graded is long-term care. This facility's received a rock-bottom long-term care score where it received a lowly F. Nursing homes that receive this type of grade in long-term care may not provide the kind of consistent around the clock care that some other facilities provide. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. Frankly, we were a bit worried that this nursing home vaccinated 88.19875 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which happens to be significantly lower than what we expected. Surprisingly, this facility was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The final area we scored is nursing. We gave it an F for this category, which is a very poor score. Our nursing rating is largely tied to the nursing home'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. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This place performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
