Facility Inspections

Grade: B

While we graded this nursing home incredibly poorly overall, it received a very impressive government inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our better grades in that category with a grade of B. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. It is typically in your best interest to avoid facilities that had a long list of deficiencies. This place was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies an immediate risk to resident safety or health. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's second most respectable category was short-term care, but it still received just a D in that area. This still happens to be a relatively poor grade. In determining our short-term care grades, we assess a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This score is generally a fair assessment of the facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. With its grade in this area, we weren't surprised to discover that this facility is well below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its patients based on the data we assessed. The last metric we looked at in this area is the number of residents that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 0 percent of its patients returning home. This was quite a bit below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Tragically, we gave this facility an F for its long-term care score. When facilities receive this type of score in this category it is often a bad sign for resident care and it may indicate that the nursing home is not as well-staffed. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccines. Frankly, we were a bit worried that this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to a relatively low 74.53704 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The next category we rated was nursing. We gave it an abysmal F for this category, which is a rock bottom grade. Our nursing rating includes many subcategories. The most heavily weighted one is the quantity of hours nurses spent with residents. This facility offered just 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This place performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
