Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

In addition to receiving a great overall score, this facility really excelled in the category of nursing, where it received a grade of A-. The nursing grade consists of a handful of datapoints, but the most important one is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home averages 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place 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 many times be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

We also awarded this facility a strong grade in short-term care. This facility received a B+ in this category, which turns out to be one of our more favorable scores. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to assess measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Unfortunately, we weren't able to find information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We awarded this nursing home just a D for our long-term care grade. This is not one of our better scores. When nursing homes receive this kind of grade in this category it is a bad sign for patient care and it may indicate that the facility is not as well-staffed. One of the criteria we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccines. Frankly, we were a bit concerned this facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to a relatively low 47.16981 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this facility actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Turning our final category of inspections, this facility received a grade that's as bad as it gets. Unfortunately, with an F in the inspection category, this facility's overall grade was adversely affected. We would advise paying close attention to any deficiencies on a nursing home's inspection reports when it receives this bad of an inspection rating. We recommend you pay close attention to the severity of those deficiencies. This nursing home was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they caused a threat to resident safety or health. Finally, we would like to draw your attention to the fact that this facility was assessed large government fines recently of more than $100,000. This typically suggests that a poor performance spanned multiple years.
