Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

While this facility's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually didn't perform terribly in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B- for that category, which is one of our better scores. We believe that one of the most critical factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. We especially focus on the severity of the deficiencies. 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. In spite of this deficiency, this was still a relatively positive report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

In addition, we gave this facility an F in the area of nursing care. Nursing scores are heavily correlated with quality and quantity of nursing care. This place provided only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is an alarmingly low total. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing scores. This facility fared well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The third category we assessed was long-term care. This nursing home's was given an abysmal long-term care score where it was given an F. For patients seeking a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 97.19101 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is more than most nursing homes. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next category we assessed is short-term care. This facility was given a rock bottom grade of F in that category. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to assess measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Given its score in this area, we were not stunned to discover that this place was well below average in terms of the quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the measures we looked at. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.1 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
