Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

While we graded this nursing home incredibly poorly overall, it actually earned a fairly impressive government inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our more favorable scores in that area with a grade of B+. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively insignificant. This place was assessed 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate risk to resident health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this nursing home only earned a grade of D for its short-term care rating, which is actually one of its higher category grades. In crafting our short-term care scores, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The goal is to create a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. With a grade of this caliber in this category, we weren't surprised to discover that this nursing home was below average in multiple staffing metrics we looked at. The facility offered substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most other nursing homes. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This was not a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 5.1 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. At most facilities, around half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Among this nursing home's several poor grades was its F in the area of nursing care. The nursing rating analyzes several components, however, the paramount consideration is the quantity of nurse 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 ratings. This facility fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these statistics to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last area we rated was long-term care, in which this facility received a poor score in this category also. We gave it an abysmal F in this area, which is obviously somewhat alarming. Facilities that do not fare well in this category typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine medical care we assessed. After considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 91.07143 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which happens to be slightly below what we expected but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. Surprisingly, this place was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
