Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of B- for our inspections rating. In fact, the facility received very impressive inspection report this year. Our inspection ratings are tied to several datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these reports. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to patient safety. This nursing home was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This means that CMS didn't deem any of these deficiencies to cause an imminent risk to resident health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facility also didn't fare poorly in the area of short-term care. Indeed, we gave it a grade of C for that category, which turned out to be among its more respectable scores. Our short-term care grade is generally employed to assess a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To provide high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to offer better levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its level of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients that who were able to eventually return home from this facility. We found that 5.5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

This facility ended up receiving rock bottom score in our nursing category. It received an F in this category. We weighed the licensure of nurses working for the facility, in addition to the number of hours the nurses were with residents, in determining our rating in this category. This particular place offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This figure is quite a bit below the national average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This place fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we looked at was long-term care. This facility received a poor grade of F in this category. When facilities receive a grade in this range in this category it generally means the nursing home didn't perform well in our quality measures relating to resident care. After assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. Frankly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility vaccinated 86.35394 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is quite a bit less than the national average. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
