Facility Inspections

Grade: D

On top of receiving a bad overall grade, we also awarded this nursing home poor scores in each of the categories. It only received just a D for its inspections grade, which was its top area. Inspection grades weigh a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. You should be most cautious when considering a nursing home with severe deficiencies on a recent inspection report. This nursing home was hit with one category G through L deficiency, which are among the more serious categories of deficiencies. These categories indicate that the deficiencies found by inspectors had potential to create actual harm to patients. Lastly, we also would like to point out that this facility was assessed significant government fines in recent years amounting to more than $100,000. This typically indicates that a nursing home's poor performance has been an issue for multiple years.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

We also wanted to draw your attention to this facility's poor nursing grade where it received an F. Our nursing score is largely associated with a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This facility averaged a meager 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is well below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This facility performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these metrics to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Tragically, we gave this facility an F for its long-term care score. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in long-term care it generally means the nursing home did not perform well in our quality measures relating to patient care. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. We were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility vaccinated 54.570637 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which happens to be quite a bit lower than average. To our surprise, this place was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Moving on to our fourth area, this facility really didn't perform very well here either. Due to an abysmal grade of F in short-term care, this is just about as terrible as it gets. In the category of short-term care, we endeavor to evaluate measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. With its poor grade in this category, we were not shocked to discover this place provides significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other facilities. The final item we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 3.7 percent of its patients returning home.
