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. Inspection scores account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This facility was hit with 2 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but none were in any of the categories labeled G through L. This indicates that this facility dodged the more significant categories of deficiencies. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received some government fines in recent years.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

We also wanted to point out this nursing home's bottom of the barrel short-term care grade where it was given an F. With our short-term care grade, we seek to craft a sound gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at the facility's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. We found that this facility was subpar in many staffing areas we assessed. The facility offered fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most nursing homes. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who returned home from this nursing home. We found that it performed better in this area, with 50 percent of its patients returning home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

We also wanted to point out that this nursing home received an F for its nursing grade. Our nursing category assesses many components, most of which are associated with nursing hours. This place averaged just 2.6 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is well below average. Unfortunately, this facility also had abysmal marks in some of the quality-based measures to go along with its weak nursing hour totals. We looked at the percent of residents sustaining pressure ulcers and we were disappointed. This place was at roughly 150 percent of the national average in this metric.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we looked at was long-term care. This nursing home was given a very poor grade of F in this category. For patients seeking a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are an important measure. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 99.04762 percent of its patients, which is better than most nursing homes. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
