Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a B- for our inspections rating. In fact, the facility received very impressive inspection report this year. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively minor. This facility received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered severe. This indicates that the inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Incredibly, we awarded this facility a C for our long-term care grade, which really isn't too bad of a score. In calculating our long-term care ratings, we scrutinize the personal care offered to a facility's residents. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Frankly, we were a bit alarmed this facility vaccinated a relatively low 80.67796 percent of its residents. Fortunately, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

This facility ended up receiving a rock-bottom grade in our short-term care area. It was given an F in this area. In computing our short-term care ratings, we analyze a facility's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. This rating is typically a fair assessment of the nursing home's rehabilitation services. With a score of this caliber in this area, we weren't surprised to learn that this nursing home was well below average in multiple staffing areas we looked at. The facility provided substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most other nursing homes. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely was not a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 4.6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. At most facilities, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Moving on to the last category, this nursing home really did not fare very well in this area either. Due to a rock bottom grade of F in nursing, this is really as as uninspiring as it gets. When calculating our nursing scores, we analyze both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the levels of licensure of the nurses. 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. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing ratings. This place performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
