Facility Inspections

Grade: B

While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it earned a relatively impressive inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our better grades in that category with a B. Inspection ratings are based on datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these reports. You should especially avoid facilities that have severe deficiencies linked to risks to resident well being. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This tells you that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this nursing home only earned a grade of D for its long-term care grade, which ended up being one of its higher category grades. For patients looking for a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Fortunately, this nursing home administered the vaccine to 99.637024 percent of its patients, which is a very solid percentage. To our surprise, this place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Unfortunately, we gave this facility an F for its nursing grade. When calculating our nursing ratings, we weigh both staffing levels and the training levels of those nurses. With only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily, this facility's nurse staffing levels were significantly below the national average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This place performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final category we scored is short-term care. This facility was given a very poor grade of F in that category. With our short-term care score, we seek to create a sound barometer for rehabilitation. In doing so, we assess the facility's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Based on its score in this category, we were not stunned to discover that this nursing home was well below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the figures we assessed. Frankly, this was about what we expected here. The final metric we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 3.6 percent of its residents returning home.
