Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Although this place's overall score was as bad as it gets, it actually fared well in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of B+ for that area, which is one of our better scores. Inspection scores are tied to many pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key item to look for on these inspections. You should especially avoid facilities with severe deficiencies linked to risks to resident well being. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Despite this deficiency, this was still a relatively favorable inspection report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We awarded this nursing home a grade of just D for our long-term care score and that actually turned out to be its next highest score. For prospective residents looking for a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are an important measure. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 98.41987 percent of its residents, which is more than the average nursing home. To our surprise, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

In addition, we gave this nursing home a rock-bottom F in the area of short-term care. In calculating our short-term care grades, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The purpose is to formulate a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The final item we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who returned home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.4 percent of its patients returning home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Turning to the last area, this nursing home did not perform very well here either. Due to a very poor grade of F in nursing, this is really as as uninspiring as it gets. We weighed the licensure of nurses at the nursing home, as well as the quantity of time the nurses worked with residents, in computing our score in this area. With a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day, this nursing home's nurse staffing levels were far below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This facility fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
