Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it actually earned a very impressive inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our highest scores in that category with an A-. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. It is typically best to avoid facilities that had too many 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. Even with this deficiency, this place still received a relatively favorable report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

As it turns out, this facility only earned a D for its long-term care grade, which is actually one of its more respectable category scores. For prospective residents looking for a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. One of the criteria we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccinations. Thankfully, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 99.73891 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this facility also keeps its residents out of the hospital. It had just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

As it turns out, this nursing home only received a grade of D for its short-term care grade, which is not a score to write home about. Short-term care scores are based in part on the facility's quantity of skilled nursing services. This means a broad spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Not surprisingly, we discovered that this nursing home provides substantially less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the average nursing home. The final datapoint we assessed in this category is the number of residents who were able to return home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 0 percent of its patients returning home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The last category we graded is nursing. Unfortunately, we gave it an F for this category, which is an abysmal grade. When computing our nursing scores, we weigh both staffing levels and the skill levels of those nurses. This facility averaged only 0.1 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This place fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these statistics to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
