Facility Inspections

Grade: C

While this nursing home's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually didn't perform terribly in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a C for that category, which is one of our better scores. Our inspection scores account for a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This facility was assessed 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were category G through L deficiencies. This indicates that this facility dodged the more serious categories of deficiencies. Finally, CMS cited this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. Hopefully, its performance improves in the future, but until then we simply can't recommend this facility.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

In our next category, we gave this nursing home an F in the category of long-term care. For patients seeking a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are an important measure. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 96.77755 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this nursing home also keeps its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Among this nursing home's several poor grades was its F in the area of nursing care. The nursing score is based on many subcategories. The most important factor is the quantity of hours nurses spend with residents. This nursing home offered only 0.1 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is well below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing ratings. This nursing home fared well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Turning to the fourth area, this nursing home really did not perform very well in this area either. With a very poor grade of F in short-term care, this is about as bad as it gets. In crafting our short-term care ratings, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our objective is to devise a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Considering its score in this category, we weren't stunned to discover that this facility is well below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the figures we assessed. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely wasn't a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 4.3 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, about half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
