Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Although this nursing home's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually fared well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of B+ for that area, which is one of our better scores. Our inspection scores account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid places with too many severe deficiencies flagged. This nursing home was assessed 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies to cause an imminent risk to resident safety or health. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

As it turns out, this facility only earned a grade of D for its short-term care rating, which ended up being one of its more respectable category grades. Short-term care grades are crucial for patients needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a broad scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. As you might expect, we discovered that this nursing home offers significantly less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than a typical nursing home. The last item we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to return home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 0 percent of its residents returning home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

We also wanted to point out that this nursing home received an F for its nursing grade. When computing a facility's nursing grade, we weigh the number of hours nurses are caring for residents and the level of licensure of the nurses. This facility provided just 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This place performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last category we analyzed was long-term care. This facility received a very poor grade of F in this area. For long-term care residents, the primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. After considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. We were optimistic to discover that this nursing home vaccinated 99.64413 percent of its residents for pneumonia. To our surprise, this place also keeps its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
