Facility Inspections

Grade: B

While we gave this place a terrible overall score, we awarded it a B for our inspections rating. This is due to the nursing home receiving a decent government inspection report this year. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be relatively minor. While this place had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

We were also stunned to find that this facility earned a decent long-term care score in our assessment. We gave it a C in that area. Long-term care grades are used to gauge a facility's performance as a traditional nursing home, as opposed to focusing more on the skilled nursing services offered by a rehabilitation facility. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Fortunately, this facility vaccinated 98.73418 percent of its patients, which is a very respectable statistic. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The third category we graded is short-term care. This nursing home's received a bottom of the barrel short-term care score where it received a lowly F. Our short-term care ratings are considered to be most important for people requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally requires more highly-skilled nursing. This means not merely nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. With its grade in this category, we were not stunned to learn that this facility is well below average in terms of the number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its patients based on the data we looked at. Honestly, this was what we expected here. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The final category we looked at is nursing. We gave it an abysmal F in this category, which is a poor score. Nursing grades are based largely on nurse staffing levels. This place provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This place fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
