Facility Inspections

Grade: B

While this nursing home's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it performed well in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B for that area, which is one of our better scores. Inspection grades are based on pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these reports. Most importantly, you should avoid nursing homes with severe deficiencies linked to endangerment of patients. 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. Despite this deficiency, this was still a relatively favorable inspection report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to the area of long-term care, this facility was given a grade of just D in that area. Unfortunately, this ended up being one of its better grades. When facilities receive a grade in this range in long-term care it generally means the nursing home didn't perform well in our quality measures relating to patient care. We were missing a few metrics in determining this facility's long-term care rating, so this grade may not be as accurate as some of our other category scores.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Additionally, we gave this facility an F in the area of short-term care. In the category of short-term care, we seek to assess measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. As you might expect, we discovered that this nursing home provides far less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the average nursing home. The last datapoint we assessed in this category is the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 0 percent of its residents returning home. This was well below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The next area we graded was nursing. This nursing home received an abysmal grade of F in this category. Our nursing grade weighs a handful of subcategories, many of which are associated with quantities of nurse staffing. This nursing home averaged only 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing scores. This facility fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these data points to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
