Facility Inspections

Grade: B

While this facility's overall grade was terrible, it performed pretty well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B for that area, which is one of our better scores. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. It is generally in your best interest to avoid places that had too many deficiencies. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This means that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Included in this facility's several rock-bottom scores was its F in the area of short-term care. Short-term care scores are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a broad range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. Considering its score in this area, we weren't stunned to learn that this place was well below average in terms of its number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its patients based on the data we assessed. The final metric we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.6 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, this was well below the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

We also wanted to point out that this nursing home received an F for its nursing grade. When determining a facility's nursing grade, we consider the number of hours nurses are caring for residents as well as the level of skill of the nurses. With a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, this nursing home's nurse staffing levels were quite a bit below the national average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This nursing home performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last category we scored was long-term care, in which this facility was given an abysmal score in this area as well. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F for this category, which is obviously a major disappointment. When facilities receive this kind of grade in long-term care it is a bad sign for resident care and it may indicate that the nursing home is not as well-staffed. Once we concluded our assessment of the amount of care provided by nurses, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were a bit worried that this nursing home vaccinated just 30.941702 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
