Facility Inspections

Grade: B

Although this nursing home's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it performed pretty well in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B for that category, which is one of our better scores. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. It is typically in your best interest to avoid places that have too many severe deficiencies. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the category of long-term care, this nursing home received just a D in this category. Unfortunately, this ended up being one of its better grades. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 97.45098 percent of its residents, which is more than the vast majority of nursing homes. To our surprise, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

We also wanted to point out that this nursing home received an F for its nursing grade. When computing a nursing home's nursing rating, we consider the amount of time nurses are with residents and the skill levels of the nurses. This facility provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This nursing home performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Turning to our last area, this facility really didn't fare very well in this category either. Due to an abysmal grade of F in short-term care, this is just about as as uninspiring as it gets. In determining our short-term care scores, we scrutinize the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. This category is generally a useful measure of a facility's rehabilitation. Given its grade in this area, we weren't surprised to discover that this place is well below average in terms of its number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the figures we looked at. Honestly, this was about what we expected here. The final statistic we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics doomed this facility's short-term care grade.
