Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Although this place's overall score was terrible, it actually fared well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B+ for that category, which is one of our better scores. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. It is generally best to avoid facilities that have a long list of severe deficiencies. This nursing home was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe. This tells you that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to create an imminent risk to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the category of short-term care, this nursing home was awarded a grade of just D in this category. As it turns out, this wound up being its second best grade. In our short-term care score, we seek to create a fair gauge for rehabilitation services. In this process, we analyze a nursing home's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. With its grade in this category, we weren't stunned to learn that this facility is well below average in terms of the quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its patients based on the figures we assessed. Frankly, this was what we expected to find. Finally, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 5.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, around half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

This facility's next best category was nursing, but even there it received a grade of just D. This is still a well below average grade. We weighed the skill-level of nurses working for the nursing home, as well as the number of hours those nurses spent with patients, in computing our rating in this category. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This place performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we scored is long-term care. This facility was given an abysmal grade of F in that area. In a long-term care setting, the nursing home's primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 95.945946 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this place was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
