Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

While this facility's overall score was not great, it received a good grade in the category of short-term care. In fact, we gave it a B+ for that category, which is one of our better scores. This one of its few redeeming features. Short-term care ratings are vital for residents needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a wide spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. This turned out to be its second best category grade. In that category, we gave this facility an B. The nursing category includes quite a few factors, most of which are tied to quantities of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

We wanted to point out this place's inspection grade where it received a lowly F. This usually means we found red flags on its inspections. When a place has this bad of an inspection grade, you should expect some severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to resident safety. This nursing home was assessed 8 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they posed a threat to resident health or safety. Finally, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received large government fines in recent years of more than $50,000. This often indicates that government inspectors became frustrated after multiple years of bad government inspections.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we looked at is long-term care, in which this nursing home was given a rock bottom grade here also. It received a lowly F in this area, which is obviously a major concern. Nursing homes that do not fare well in this category typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine healthcare services we assessed. After considering the quantity of care provided by nurses, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 92.23301 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.
