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. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively insignificant. This place was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were in any of the categories labeled G through L. This tells you this facility dodged the more serious classes of deficiencies. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the area of nursing care, this facility received a grade of just D in this category. Unfortunately, this ended up being one of its better grades. Our nursing grade is primarily 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. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This place performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this nursing home only earned a grade of D for its long-term care rating, which is well below average in this category. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids, as well as the levels of routine medical care available. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. We were disappointed to learn that this nursing home vaccinated a relatively low 53.333336 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we looked at was short-term care. This facility received a rock bottom grade of F in this area. In determining our short-term care grades, we look at the nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This score is more often than not a fair assessment of the facility's rehabilitation. With its weak rating in this area, we were not stunned to learn that this place provided substantially fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most facilities. Finally, we considered the number of residents that returned home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 2.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
