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 grade of C for that category, which is one of our better scores. Our inspection ratings weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This place was assessed 9 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were in category J, K or L. This means CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies to place resident health or safety in imminent harm or jeopardy. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

Remarkably, we awarded this nursing home a grade of C for our nursing rating, which isn't a bad grade. Our nursing rating is mostly associated with the facility's nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this nursing home performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is often a reliable indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This facility's second least favorable category was long-term care, where it received a grade of just D in that area. This is a well below average score. When nursing homes receive this type of score in long-term care it is a bad sign for patient care and it may indicate that the facility is not as well-staffed. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Frankly, we were a bit worried that this facility gave the vaccine to only 77.04918 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 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.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next category we rated was short-term care. Sadly, it received an F for this area, which is a poor grade. In calculating our short-term care scores, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The goal is to formulate a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of various facilities. With a grade in this range in this area, we were not shocked to find this place was well below average in multiple staffing areas we focus on. It provided significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other nursing homes. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 3.8 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
