Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of B- for our inspections rating. In fact, the facility received very impressive inspection report this year. We would argue that one of the most critical factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially look at the severity of the deficiencies. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Lastly, this nursing home was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. This is generally a really bad sign. We would never recommend this facility.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing grade. In that area, we gave this facility an F. Nursing scores are largely based on the facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing scores. This facility fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these statistics to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

This nursing home ended up receiving a a very poor score in our long-term care category. It received a lowly F in this area. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination statistics. Unfortunately, this nursing home vaccinated just 78.85304 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last area we assessed is short-term care. It received an abysmal F for this area, which is a poor grade. Short-term care grades are generally used to measure a facility's performance with rehabilitation. To have high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to feature higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. Considering its grade in this category, we weren't stunned to discover that this nursing home was well below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its patients based on the metrics we looked at. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 3.4 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, around half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
