Facility Inspections

Grade: C

Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a C for our inspections rating. In fact, the facility received very impressive inspection report this year. Inspection scores are tied to many items located in 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 resident safety. This facility was hit with 4 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but fortunately none were in categories J through L. This tells you inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to place resident safety or health in immediate harm or jeopardy. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this nursing home only received a grade of D for its long-term care rating, which happens to be one of its better category scores. For long-term care residents, the primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours was vaccines. Fortunately, this facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 99.354836 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this nursing home also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Another unfortunate development is the F this nursing home was given in the category of short-term care. In calculating our short-term care grades, we size up the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This category is often a useful measure of a facility's rehabilitation. Not surprisingly, we discovered that this nursing home provides significantly less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the average facility. Finally, we assessed the number of residents that eventually returned home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.7 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The last category we scored was nursing. Sadly, it received a lowly F for this category, which is a bottom of the barrel score. We assessed the licensure of nurses at the facility, in addition to the quantity of hours those nurses spent with residents, in determining our grade in this category. This particular facility averaged just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This number is significantly below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing scores. This nursing home performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
