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. Inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's next best score was short-term care, but it nevertheless earned a grade of just D in that category. This ended up being a well below average score. In computing our short-term care grades, we size up a facility's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This category is more often than not a meaningful measure of a nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the average facility. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 5 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this facility's third highest category is long-term care. Nevertheless, with a D in this category, it still performed somewhat poorly. For residents looking for a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. After we finished looking at the volume of care provided by nurses, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. We were optimistic to learn that this facility vaccinates 95.79832 percent of its residents against pneumonia. To our surprise, this facility also keeps its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The next category we scored is nursing, in which this nursing home was given an abysmal score in this area as well. We gave it a lowly F in this category, which is definitely a major concern. In determining a nursing home's nursing grade, we assess the amount of time nurses are with patients as well as the level of licensure of those nurses. This facility offered a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these metrics to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
