Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

While we graded this nursing home incredibly poorly overall, it actually earned an impressive inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our best scores in that category with an A-. Inspection ratings are based on many datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these reports. You should especially avoid facilities with severe deficiencies linked to endangerment of patients. This nursing home received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to be an imminent risk to resident health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

We also wanted to draw your attention to this facility's poor nursing grade where it received an F. Nursing ratings are largely associated with the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home offered a meager 0.1 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next category we graded is long-term care. This facility's was given a low-end long-term care score where it received an F. For prospective patients in need of a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses, we next considered the facility's vaccination statistics. We were pleased to learn that this nursing home vaccinates 94.31438 percent of its patients against pneumonia. To our surprise, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final area we rated was short-term care. This nursing home was given a bottom of the barrel grade of F in this category. Short-term care grades are typically employed to measure a facility's performance with rehabilitation. To offer highly rated rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to provide better levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
