Facility Inspections

Grade: B

While this place's overall grade was terrible, it actually fared well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B for that area, which is one of our better scores. Our inspection scores weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid places with a list of severe deficiencies flagged. This facility was hit with 8 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to pose an immediate risk to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Sadly, this nursing home only received a grade of D for its long-term care rating, which turns out to be one of its more respectable category grades. Nursing homes that don't score well in long-term care often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in a few of the areas of routine medical care we assessed. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 92.17391 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is slightly lower than we anticipated but still a decent percentage. Surprisingly, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Our next category we looked at is short-term care, where this facility received an F. Short-term care scores are vital for prospective residents looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates higher levels of skilled nursing services. This includes a broad spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Based on its grade in this category, we weren't surprised to learn that this place was well below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its residents based on the measures we assessed. Honestly, this was what we expected to find. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely wasn't a strength for this facility. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, about half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The next area we rated is nursing. It received an abysmal F for this area, which is an abysmal score. Our nursing score is mostly based on a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This facility averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is not a very impressive figure. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This nursing home performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these data points to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.
