Facility Inspections

Grade: A

While we were not high on this nursing home's overall score, it received a very impressive inspection report this year. In fact, it received an excellent inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our best grades in that category with an A. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively minor. Although this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We awarded this nursing home a grade of just D for our short-term care grade and that actually turned out to be its second most favorable category. In computing our short-term care grades, we size up a facility's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. This grade is generally a useful measure of a facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. With a grade of this caliber in this area, we weren't stunned to find this nursing home was below average in many staffing figures we looked at. The facility supplied substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most nursing homes. The last statistic we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents that eventually returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 0 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was well below the national average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We gave this nursing home a grade of just D for our long-term care grade. This is not one of our better scores. When facilities receive this kind of grade in long-term care it is typically a bad sign for resident care and it may indicate that the nursing home is not as well-staffed with nurses and aids. After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. We were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility vaccinated 83.13253 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is quite a bit less than the national average. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The final area we assessed was nursing. This facility received a rock bottom grade of F in this area. When determining a nursing home's nursing score, we assess the amount of time nurses commit to patients and the level of licensure of those nurses. This nursing home averaged a meager 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This place fared well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these metrics to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
