Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

While this nursing home's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it fared 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 computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. It is typically best to avoid facilities that had a long list of deficiencies. While this place had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

We also wanted to point out this nursing home's unfortunate short-term care score where it received a lowly F. Our short-term care scores are thought to be more critical for people in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing services. This means not just nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. With a score in this range in this category, we were not stunned to learn this nursing home was below average in several staffing areas we assess. In fact, it supplied substantially fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other nursing homes. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 5.2 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Our third category we analyzed was long-term care, where this facility was given an F. For prospective patients seeking a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. One of the factors we considered after nursing hours was vaccinations. Fortunately, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 99.41406 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this place also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The final area we scored was nursing. This facility received a bottom of the barrel grade of F in that area. Our nursing score is primarily associated with the nursing home's nurse staffing. With only 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient daily, this facility's nurse staffing levels were quite a bit below the national average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This facility performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
