Facility Inspections

Grade: D

In addition to receiving a poor overall score, we also gave this facility terrible grades across the board in each of the categories. In fact, it only received a D for its inspections grade, which is its best category. Our inspection ratings weigh several factors found on a facility's inspection reports. You should be especially cautious when considering a facility with severe deficiencies on a recent inspection report. This nursing home was assessed a category G through L deficiency, which rank among the more serious deficiencies. This generally indicates that the deficiencies found by CMS had the potential to cause actual harm to residents. Finally, we would like to point out that this place was assessed significant government fines in recent years amounting to more than $100,000. This often means that a facility's bad track record has been an issue for several years.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. This turned out to be its second best category grade. In that category, we awarded this nursing home an F. Nursing grades are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing ratings. This facility performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The third category we looked at was long-term care. This facility's was given a bottom of the barrel long-term care grade where it received a lowly F. Long-term care grades in this range generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. One of the datapoints we considered after nursing hours was vaccinations. We were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to only 52.090034 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best feature in this category.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Moving on to our last area, this nursing home really did not fare very well in this area either. Due to a bottom of the barrel grade of F in short-term care, this is really as as uninspiring as it gets. In forming these short-term care scores, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our purpose is to formulate a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The last datapoint we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.2 percent of its patients returning home.
