Facility Inspections

Grade: B

While this place's overall score was as bad as it gets, it fared pretty well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B for that category, which is one of our better scores. Arguably the most important factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. It is typically best to avoid places that have too many deficiencies. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

This facility's second best category was nursing, but even there it received a grade of just D. This is still a well below average grade. Nursing ratings are largely tied to the nursing home's nurse staffing. This place averaged just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Another issue is the F this facility received in the area of short-term care. Our short-term care ratings are considered to be more critical for those in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually utilizes additional skilled nursing services. This means not only nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Considering its grade in this area, we weren't surprised to discover that this nursing home is well below average in terms of the quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the measures we looked at. Frankly, this was what we expected to find. The last statistic we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.3 percent of its patients returning home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final category we analyzed is long-term care. This nursing home was given a very poor grade of F in that category. When facilities receive a score in this range in long-term care it typically means the nursing home did not perform well in our quality measures relating to patient care. After considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. We were concerned by the fact that this facility vaccinated a relatively low 89.55224 percent of its patients for pneumonia. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.
