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. Our inspection grades weigh a host of factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with 4 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but none were in any of the categories labeled G through L. This means inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to present an imminent risk to patient health or safety. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

This facility ended up receiving rock bottom score in our nursing category. It received an F in this category. Nursing scores are largely associated with the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. With just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, this facility's nurse staffing levels were well below the national average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these statistics to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

In addition, we gave this nursing home an F in the category of short-term care. In determining our short-term care scores, we analyze a facility's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other licensed professionals. This score is generally a reliable assessment of a facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. As you might expect, we found that this place offers far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than a typical nursing home. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 4.2 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Moving on to the fourth area, this facility didn't fare very well in this category either. Due to a bottom of the barrel grade of F in long-term care, this is really as as uninspiring as it gets. Long-term care grades in this range generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids, as well as the levels of routine medical care available. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. We were disappointed to learn that this nursing home vaccinated only 61.752434 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
