Facility Inspections

Grade: B

Although we graded this nursing home incredibly poorly overall, it actually earned a fairly impressive inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our better grades in that category with a B. Inspection ratings are tied to pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these reports. You should especially avoid facilities that have severe deficiencies linked to risks to resident well being. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Sadly, this nursing home only received a D for its short-term care score, which ended up being one of its more favorable category scores. In determining these short-term care scores, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The purpose is to create a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Considering its grade in this area, we were not stunned to discover that this facility is well below average in terms of the number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the data we looked at. Finally, we assessed the number of patients that were able to return home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 5.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

We gave this facility a grade of just D for our nursing rating. In calculating a nursing home's nursing rating, we look at the amount of time nurses spend with patients and the levels of training of the nurses. This particular nursing home offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This statistic is well below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing ratings. This place performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these statistics to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Turning to our fourth area, this facility really didn't fare well in this category either. Due to a very poor grade of F in long-term care, this is really as as uninspiring as it gets. Nursing homes that do not fare well in long-term care often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in a few of the areas of routine medical care we assessed. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were a bit concerned this nursing home vaccinated 82.59386 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which happens to be significantly less than what we expected. Surprisingly, this facility actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
