Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a B- for our inspections rating. In fact, the facility received very impressive inspection report this year. Our inspection grades are based on many pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these inspections. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to patient safety. This facility received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies an immediate threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

This facility ended up receiving a a very poor score in our long-term care area. It received an F in this category. Facilities that receive this type of score in this category likely don't provide the kind of consistent around the clock care that some other facilities provide. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. Unfortunately, this facility vaccinated just 75.6654 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

We also wanted to point out that this nursing home received an F for its nursing grade. Our nursing score looks at the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We weigh both the levels of skill of those nurses and the number of hours spent with residents. This facility averaged only 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is an alarmingly low total. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final area we looked at is short-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F in this area, which is a very poor score. Our short-term care grade is typically employed to score a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to have highly graded rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to provide higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. Based on its grade in this category, we weren't stunned to learn that this facility is well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. This definitely wasn't a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, about half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
