Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

While this facility's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually really excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it an A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Our inspection scores are tied to several datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these inspections. You should especially avoid facilities that have severe deficiencies associated with endangerment of patients. This nursing home was hit with 12 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We awarded this facility a grade of just D for our short-term care grade and that actually turned out to be its next most respectable category. In calculating our short-term care grades, we look at a nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. This grade is often a fair assessment of the nursing home's rehabilitation services. Considering its weak rating in this category, we weren't surprised to discover this facility offered far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most facilities. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We were surprised to find that it performed better in this area, with 51.4 percent of its residents returning home. This was just about this nursing home's sole highlight in this area.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This facility's second least favorable score is long-term care, where it earned just a D in that category. This is a relatively poor score. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Candidly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility vaccinated only 87.658226 percent of its patients. Finally, we looked at its number of hospitalizations. Here we found that this nursing home had 2.58 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, this figure is also concerning.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The final category we analyzed is nursing, in which this nursing home was given a bottom of the barrel grade in this area also. It received an abysmal F for this category, which is obviously a major disappointment. Nursing scores are largely tied to the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This facility offered a meager 2.5 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is well below average. This nursing home also had terrible marks in some of the quality-based measures to go along with its low nursing hours. We looked at the percent of residents experiencing pressure ulcers and we were disappointed. This nursing home was at roughly 1.5 times the national average in this metric.
