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. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. 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: C

This facility also didn't grade out terribly in the category of short-term care. In fact, we awarded it a grade of C for that category, which happens to be another one of its more respectable scores. Our short-term care ratings are crucial for residents requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a broad scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. The last datapoint we considered in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to the category of long-term care, this facility received just a D in that area. For patients looking for a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are an important measure. One of the statistics we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccinations. Fortunately, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 99.27536 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

The next area we assessed is nursing, ended up being this nursing home's worst area. We gave this nursing home a grade of D in that area. Nursing ratings are largely tied to the nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home averaged only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This facility performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
