Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Although this nursing home's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it performed pretty well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B+ for that area, which is one of our better scores. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively insignificant. This nursing home was assessed 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to be an immediate threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the area of long-term care, this facility was awarded just a D in this category. Sadly, this proved to be one of its better grades. For long-term care residents, the primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 96.039604 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0.04 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The third area we graded is short-term care. This nursing home's received an abysmal short-term care grade where it was given an F. Short-term care scores are crucial for individuals looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a broad spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 4 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The next area we assessed is nursing, in which this nursing home was given an abysmal grade in this category also. Unfortunately, we gave it an F in this category, which is definitely somewhat alarming. The nursing score is based on quite a few data points, but the most important consideration is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This facility provided a meager 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is an alarmingly low total. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these metrics to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
