Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Although we gave this nursing home a poor overall score, we awarded it a B+ for our inspections rating. This is the result of the facility receiving a decent government inspection report this year. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection scores. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite insignificant. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's second best category was long-term care, but it still received just a D in that category. This ended up being a well below average grade. For residents in need of a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are an important measure. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 93.98281 percent of its residents. 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 most nursing homes. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we analyzed is short-term care. This facility's received a rock-bottom short-term care score where it was given an F. With our short-term care assessment, we endeavor to craft a fair gauge for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we analyze a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. With a score of this caliber in this area, we were not surprised to discover this facility was well below average in multiple staffing figures we focus on. The nursing home provided far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The final statistic we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to return home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 5.1 percent of its patients returning home. This was well below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Turning to our final area, this facility really didn't fare well in this area either. Due to a poor grade of F in nursing, this is just about as terrible as it gets. Nursing grades are largely tied to a facility's nurse staffing. This place provided only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This facility performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
