Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Although we gave this nursing home a horrible overall grade, we awarded it an A for our inspections rating. This grade is far more impressive than the facility's overall grade. Our inspection scores are based on several items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these reports. Most importantly, you should avoid facilities that have severe deficiencies associated with risks to resident well being. This particular nursing home received 7 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

We also want to note that this nursing home received an F for its long-term care score. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in this category it generally means the facility didn't perform well in our quality measures relating to resident care. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 63.636364 percent of its patients. This is quite a bit less than the national average. To our surprise, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.04 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Unfortunately, we gave this facility an F for its nursing grade. When computing a facility's nursing score, we weigh the amount of time nurses spend with patients and the skill levels of those nurses. This facility averaged just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is not a very impressive figure. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This nursing home fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Turning to the final area, this nursing home didn't perform well in this category either. With a poor grade of F in short-term care, this is about as terrible as it gets. Our short-term care grades are likely more important for patients needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates more skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. With its grade in this area, we weren't stunned to find that this facility is well below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the measures we assessed. Honestly, this was what we expected to find. Finally, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 3.5 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
