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 grades account for several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. Nursing turned out to be its second best category grade. In that category, we gave this nursing home an C. Nursing scores are based largely on levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a somewhat concerning figure as it is well below the national average. Lastly, we also looked at several nursing quality measures. Although this facility got dinged a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of these quality-based measures. With less than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it did well in this subcategory. This is generally an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of turning patients at least once a day.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We awarded this nursing home just a D for our short-term care rating. This is not one of our better scores. Our short-term care grades are probably more critical for people needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. With its grade in this area, we were not stunned to discover that this place was well below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the data we assessed. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 5 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's weakest area is long-term care, which is the final category we assessed. For this category, we awarded this nursing home a D. When facilities receive this type of score in long-term care it is typically a bad sign for resident care and it may mean that the nursing home is not as well-staffed with nurses and aids. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 23.623302 percent of its residents. This is multiple points lower than the national average. Surprisingly, this facility actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
