Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

While this facility's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually really excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it an A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Inspection grades weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid nursing homes with a bunch of severe deficiencies flagged. While this facility had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This means 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 necessarily the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to the area of short-term care, this facility was awarded a grade of just D in that area. Sadly, this ended up being one of its better features. In the category of short-term care, we strive to assess indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Given its grade in this area, we weren't surprised to learn that this place was well below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the measures we looked at. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 5.3 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Tragically, this facility received an F for its long-term care grade. If you are seeking anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care grades. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this place also keeps its residents out of the hospital. It had just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Moving on to the last area, this nursing home did not perform very well here either. With a bottom of the barrel grade of F in nursing, this is just about as bad as it gets. When computing our nursing scores, we weigh both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the levels of licensure of those nurses. This facility provided just 0.1 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. In addition to receiving below average marks for nursing hours, this nursing home was a bit less impressive in some of the quality-based measures we looked at in computing our nursing grades. We looked at the percent of patients sustaining pressure ulcers and found this nursing home was at approximately 1.5 times the national average in this metric.
