Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Although we gave this nursing home a poor overall grade, we awarded it a B+ for our inspections category. This was the result of the facility receiving a quality inspection report this year. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively insignificant. While this place had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the category of long-term care, this facility was given a grade of just D in this area. As it turns out, this wound up being one of its better features. 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. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. We were concerned by the fact that this nursing home vaccinated only 89.69957 percent of its patients for pneumonia. To our surprise, this place actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Among this nursing home's several poor grades was its F in the area of nursing care. We assessed the licensure of nurses working for the nursing home, as well as the quantity of hours the nurses spent with residents, in determining our rating in this area. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final area we analyzed was short-term care, in which this nursing home was given a poor score in this category as well. Unfortunately, we gave it an F for this category, which is obviously somewhat alarming. Our short-term care scores are critical for prospective residents seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes more skilled nursing services. This includes a broad scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. With its abysmal rating in this category, we weren't shocked to find that this nursing home provides substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most other facilities. Finally, we considered the number of patients who were able to return home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3.5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
