Facility Inspections

Grade: C

While this place's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually didn't perform terribly in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a C for that category, which is one of our better scores. Our inspection grades account for a host of factors found on a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This nursing home had 3 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but none were in any of the categories labeled G through L. This tells you that this facility dodged the more serious classes of deficiencies. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Additionally, we gave this facility an F in the area of short-term care. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The goal is to create a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Considering its score in this area, we weren't surprised to discover that this facility was well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the figures we assessed. Honestly, this was about what we expected to find. The last datapoint we considered in this area is the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 0 percent of its patients returning home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Among this nursing home's several poor grades was its F in the area of nursing care. Nursing ratings are based in large part on levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home offered only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This facility fared well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next category we scored is long-term care. This facility received a very poor grade of F in that category. 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 medical care we looked at. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. As it turns out, this nursing home administered the vaccine to only 69.230774 percent of its patients, which is a bit of a concern. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.
