Facility Inspections

Grade: B

While this nursing home's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it 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. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively insignificant. Although this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

We were also surprised to find that this facility received a decent nursing grade this year. We gave it a grade of C in that category. Our nursing rating is largely associated with the nursing home's nurse staffing. This facility provides only 3.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a somewhat concerning figure which is well below average. Lastly, our nursing scores also factor in quality-based assessments, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this facility performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically an indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses to assist its patients.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next category we looked at is long-term care, in which this nursing home received an F. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. We were disappointed to learn that this facility vaccinated a relatively low 53.090908 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Unfortunately, its hospitalization rate was also disappointing. Here we found that this facility had 2.2 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an alarming rate.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final category we assessed is short-term care, where this nursing home received a bottom of the barrel score in this area as well. Unfortunately, we gave it an F in this area, which is obviously somewhat alarming. In computing our short-term care grades, we size up a nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. This score is often a fair measure of a nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. In this nursing home's case, we found that it provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 35.8 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
