Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

Although we gave this facility a horrible overall score, we gave it an A- for our inspections score. This score is far more impressive than the nursing home's overall score. Our inspection scores are based on datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these reports. You should especially avoid nursing homes that have severe deficiencies associated with endangerment of patients. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing rating. In fact, nursing proved to be its second best category grade. In that category, we awarded this facility an F. There are many criteria within this category. Many of the datapoints reflect the quantity of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is well below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. This place performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we looked at is long-term care, where this nursing home was given an F. Long-term care grades in this range generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids, as well as the levels of routine medical care available. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 49.843746 percent of its patients. This is several points lower than what we expected. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best score in this category.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we assessed was short-term care, in which this nursing home received a very poor score in this category also. We gave it an abysmal F in this area, which is definitely very concerning. In the area of short-term care, we endeavor to assess measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Given its grade in this category, we were not stunned to learn that this nursing home is well below average in terms of the number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the data we assessed. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 4.5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
