Facility Inspections

Grade: A

While this nursing home's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually really excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it an A for that category, which is one of our highest scores. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

In our next category, we gave this facility an F in the area of long-term care. If you are seeking anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care scores. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Thankfully, this facility provided the vaccine to 98.58156 percent of its residents, which is a very solid total. To our surprise, this facility also keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The third category we analyzed was short-term care. This facility's was given a rock-bottom short-term care score where it was given an F. Our short-term care grades are based on the facility's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a vast scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other types of therapy. With a score in this range in this area, we were not shocked to learn this place was well below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. It offered far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most facilities. The final metric we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients that who were able to eventually return home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.4 percent of its residents returning home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The last category we analyzed was nursing. This nursing home received a bottom of the barrel grade of F in this area. Our nursing rating is based on the facility's level of nurse staffing. We consider both the levels of licensure of the nurses as well as the amount of time spent with patients. This nursing home offered just 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This figure is quite a bit below the national average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This nursing home fared well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
