Facility Inspections


While this facility's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we gave it an A for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Inspection scores weigh a host of factors found on a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid nursing homes with too many deficiencies flagged. This nursing home was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe. This means that CMS didn't consider any of these deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality


We also wanted to point out this nursing home's unfortunate short-term care score where it was given an F. Short-term care ratings are crucial for individuals looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a broad scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. With a grade of this caliber in this area, we were not surprised to find this facility was below average in several staffing areas we looked at. In fact, it supplied far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most nursing homes. Finally, we assessed the number of patients that who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.

Long-term Care Quality


This facility wound up receiving a a very poor score in our long-term care category. It was given an F in this area. When facilities receive this kind of score in long-term care it is often a bad sign for patient care and it may indicate that the nursing home is not as well-staffed with nurses and aids. One of the datapoints we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours is vaccines. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this nursing home provided information about vaccinations. Surprisingly, this facility actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.

Nurse Quality


The next area we assessed was nursing, where this facility was given a rock bottom grade here as well. Sadly, it received an abysmal F for this category, which is obviously a major concern. Nursing scores are tied to quantity of nursing care available. This place averaged only 2.1 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these metrics to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
