Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a B- for our inspections rating. In fact, the facility received very impressive inspection report this year. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Sadly, we gave this facility an F for its short-term care grade. In determining our short-term care scores, we size up a facility's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other types of therapists. This rating is often a solid measure of a nursing home's rehabilitation. With its weak rating in this category, we weren't stunned to learn this facility provided significantly fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Finally, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 5.3 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, about half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Our next area we assessed is long-term care, in which this nursing home was given an F. For patients looking for a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are an important measure. On top of considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 99.12281 percent of its patients, which is higher than the average nursing home. Surprisingly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The next category we rated is nursing, where this facility received a poor grade in this area also. It received an abysmal F in this area, which is definitely a major concern. Our nursing score is mostly based on a facility's nurse staffing. This place averaged a meager 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident each day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This facility fared well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these statistics to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.
