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 are based on several pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these reports. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to the well being of residents. This nursing home had 2 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but fortunately none were in any of the categories labeled G through L. This tells you that this facility dodged the more ominous categories of deficiencies. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Unfortunately, we gave this facility an F for its short-term care score. Short-term care grades are typically used to score a facility's performance with rehabilitation. To provide highly rated rehabilitation services, facilities generally must provide better levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The last metric we looked at in this category is the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.8 percent of its patients returning home. This was well below the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

In addition, we gave this facility an F in the area of nursing care. Nursing scores are based largely on quantity of nursing care available. With just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily, this facility's nurse staffing levels were well below the national average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This nursing home performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last category we analyzed was long-term care. This facility was given a bottom of the barrel grade of F in that area. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. After looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 98.95105 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is higher than the majority of nursing homes. To our surprise, this nursing home also keeps its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
