Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

While this nursing home's overall grade was terrible, it actually performed well in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B+ for that category, which is one of our better scores. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Sadly, this facility only earned a grade of D for its short-term care grade, which is actually one of its more respectable category scores. In determining our short-term care scores, we size up the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other types of therapists. This rating is frequently a meaningful measure of the nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The last metric we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.2 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor metrics was damning for this nursing home's short-term care grade.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the area of nursing care, this facility received a grade of just D in this category. Our nursing score analyzes the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of skill of those nurses as well as the number of hours spent with patients. 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. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This place fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these metrics to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Turning to the final area, this facility did not fare very well here either. Due to a rock bottom grade of F in long-term care, this is really as bad as it gets. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it typically means the facility didn't perform well in our quality measures relating to patient care. Once we concluded our assessment of the amount of nursing care, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. Frankly, we were a bit alarmed this nursing home vaccinated just 89.677414 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
