Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

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 B- for that category, which is one of our better scores. Our inspection scores are based on many datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key item to look for on these inspections. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to resident safety. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

We were also stunned to find that this facility received a reasonably solid short-term care score this year. We awarded it a grade of C in that area. In the area of short-term care, we strive to assess indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We analyze a facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The more important thing is determining what bearing this had on the quality of care. The final metric we considered in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.8 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

This facility's next best category was nursing, but even there it received a grade of just D. This is still a well below average grade. The nursing score weighs a variety of subcategories. The most heavily weighted variable is the amount of time nurses spent with residents. With just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day, this facility's nurse staffing levels were far below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing scores. This nursing home performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last category we scored is long-term care, in which this facility received an abysmal grade in this area as well. Sadly, it received an abysmal F for this category, which is definitely somewhat alarming. Facilities that don't fare well in this category typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine medical care we assessed. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. As it turns out, this nursing home gave the vaccine to a relatively low 81.13497 percent of its patients, which is well below average. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.
