Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a B- for our inspections rating. In fact, the facility received very impressive inspection report this year. We believe that one of the most critical factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially look at the severity of the deficiencies. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This means CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

As it turns out, this facility only earned a grade of D for its short-term care grade, which happens to be one of its higher category scores. In forming our short-term care ratings, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our objective is to create a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. With its poor grade in this category, we were not stunned to discover that this nursing home offers significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other facilities. The final measure we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 5.2 percent of its residents returning home. This was quite a bit below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this facility's next highest score was long-term care. Nevertheless, with a D in this area, it still performed relatively poorly. For prospective patients in need of a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. After we finished assessing the amount of nursing care, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. We were pleased to discover that this nursing home vaccinates 96.68616 percent of its patients for pneumonia. To our surprise, this place also fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The next category we graded was nursing, in which this nursing home was given a poor grade here as well. Unfortunately, we gave it an F in this area, which is definitely a major disappointment. Our nursing rating is based on a variety of subcategories. The most important factor is the quantity of hours nurses spend with residents. With only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day, this place's nurse staffing levels were quite a bit below the national average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This facility fared well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.
