Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

While we graded this nursing home incredibly poorly overall, it actually received a relatively impressive inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our better grades in that area with a B+. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively insignificant. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Remarkably, we gave this facility a grade of C for its short-term care grade, which really isn't too bad of a score. Our short-term care ratings are crucial for residents in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates additional skilled nursing. This means a broad range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The more important thing is determining what effect this had on quality of care. The last item we considered in this category is the percentage of residents that returned home from the facility. We found that just 5.4 percent of this facility's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the area of long-term care, this nursing home was given a grade of just D in this area. In a long-term care environment, the primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. After looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. We were pleased to discover that this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.04 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The last category we assessed was nursing. This facility received a bottom of the barrel grade of F in that category. There are quite a few criteria included in this area. Most of these subcategories reflect the quantity of nurse staffing. This place averaged just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
