Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

While this place's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually didn't perform terribly in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B- for that category, which is one of our better scores. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be relatively minor. 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.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this facility only received a grade of D for its nursing grade, which was actually one of its better category grades. Our nursing grade is primarily based on a facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home offered a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is an alarmingly low total. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This facility performed well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Tragically, we gave this facility an F for its long-term care grade. Nursing homes that do not fare well in this category typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine healthcare services we assessed. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 67.24738 percent of its patients. This is significantly lower than average. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we assessed is short-term care, in which this facility received a poor grade in this category as well. Unfortunately, we gave it a lowly F for this category, which is obviously very concerning. In our short-term care assessment, we endeavor to forge a fair measure for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at the facility's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. With a grade in this range in this area, we were not surprised to learn this place was well below average in two of the key staffing metrics we focus on. In fact, it supplied significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most facilities. The final statistic we considered in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 3.7 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor metrics was damning for this nursing home's short-term care score.
