Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

While this nursing home's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually didn't perform terribly in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B- for that category, which is one of our better scores. We believe that one of the most critical factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially focus on the severity of those deficiencies. This place was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe. This indicates that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to resident safety or health. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's next most favorable score was long-term care, but it still received just a D in that category. This turns out to be a well below average grade. When nursing homes receive this type of score in this category it is a bad sign for resident care and it may mean that the place is not as well-staffed. After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination record. We were a bit worried that this facility vaccinated 76.07143 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is quite a few points lower than the national average. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Our next category we graded is short-term care, in which this facility was given an F. Short-term care grades are often employed to score a nursing home's rehabilitation services In order to have highly scored rehabilitation services, facilities generally must provide better levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other types of therapists. With its score in this area, 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 offered to its residents based on the metrics we looked at. Frankly, this was about what we expected here. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The next area we looked at was nursing. This facility received a rock bottom grade of F in this area. The nursing rating weighs numerous factors. The most important factor is the number of hours nurses spend with patients. With a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily, this nursing home's nurse staffing levels were quite a bit below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these statistics to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.
