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. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received some government fines in recent years.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to the area of long-term care, this facility was awarded just a D in this area. As it turns out, this wound up being its second best grade. Nursing homes that don't fare well in long-term care typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine personal care we looked at. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 91.791046 percent of its residents, which is slightly less than we expected. Surprisingly, this facility actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.04 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this facility only received a grade of D for its nursing grade, which was actually one of its better category grades. Our nursing score analyzes the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We consider both the levels of training of those nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with residents. This nursing home provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final area we looked at is short-term care. This facility was given a poor grade of F in this area. Our short-term care scores are believed to be more important for people in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Given its grade in this area, we weren't stunned to find that this place 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 metric we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 3.7 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics doomed this facility's short-term care grade.
