Facility Inspections

Grade: C

While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable inspection report this year. As a result, it received a decent grade in that category with a score of C. Inspection ratings are tied to many pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these reports. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to the well being of residents. This place was hit with 2 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but none were in any of the categories labeled G through L. This tells you that it dodged the more serious classes of deficiencies. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to the category of long-term care, this facility was awarded just a D in this category. Unfortunately, this proved to be its second best grade. When nursing homes receive this kind of grade in long-term care it is often a bad sign for patient care and it may indicate that the place is not as well-staffed with nurses and aids. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We were a bit worried that this nursing home administered the vaccine to a relatively low 86.41509 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best score in this category.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Unfortunately, we gave this facility an F for its nursing grade. When determining our nursing grades, we look at both staffing levels and the skill levels of those nurses. This facility averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This facility fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final area we rated was short-term care. Sadly, it received an F in this area, which is a very poor grade. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to assess indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. As you might expect, we found that this place provides substantially less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the typical nursing home. The final measure we looked at in this area is the number of residents who eventually returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 0 percent of its patients returning home. This was well below average.
