Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Although we graded this place incredibly poorly overall, it actually received a very impressive government inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our better scores in that area with a B+. These inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies an imminent threat to resident safety or health. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We awarded this nursing home a grade of just D for our short-term care rating and that actually ended up being its second best score. In our short-term care category, we try to create a fair measure for rehabilitation services. In this process, we analyze the facility's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. As you might expect, we discovered that this place provides substantially less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average nursing home. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.6 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We awarded this facility a grade of just D for our long-term care rating. This is not a very good score. In a long-term care setting, 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 aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 98.8417 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is better than the majority of nursing homes. Surprisingly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The final area we rated was nursing, where this facility received a very poor score here as well. It received an F in this area, which is obviously a major concern. Our nursing grade is mostly tied to the nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. On top of being below average in nursing hours per resident, this facility also had poor scores in the quality-based metrics we looked at in determining our nursing scores. We looked at the percent of patients experiencing major falls and pressure ulcers. This nursing home was at about 150 percent of the national average in both of these metrics. This is a bad sign when you consider that many falls and bed sores are preventable with better nursing care. These statistics pulled down this facility's nursing grade quite a bit.
