Facility Inspections

Grade: C

While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable inspection report this year. As a result, it received a decent grade in that category with a score of C. We believe that one of the most critical factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. We especially look at the severity of those deficiencies. This place had 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were in categories G through L. This means this facility avoided the more significant categories of deficiencies. Finally, they also received 42 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is certainly not a great sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Sadly, this facility's second highest score is short-term care. Nevertheless, with a D in this area, it still performed somewhat badly. In the area of short-term care, we seek to assess measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. With a grade this poor in this category, we weren't stunned to discover that this facility was below average in several staffing metrics we focus on. In fact, it offered substantially fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the area of nursing care, this facility received a grade of just D in this category. Our nursing grade analyzes the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We look at both the levels of licensure of those nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with patients. This place offered only 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is well below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This place performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we assessed is long-term care, in which this facility was given a poor grade in this area also. It received an F for this category, which is definitely a major disappointment. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. Unfortunately, we were not able to track down this place's vaccination data. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
