Facility Inspections

Grade: B

While this nursing home's overall grade was terrible, it fared pretty well in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B for that area, which is one of our better scores. Our inspection ratings weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid facilities with a bunch of deficiencies flagged. While this place had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the area of nursing care, this facility received a grade of just D in this category. Unfortunately, this ended up being one of its better grades. We weighed the licensure of nurses at the nursing home, in addition to the number of hours the nurses spent with residents, in computing our score in this category. This place offered just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these metrics to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Our next category we looked at was long-term care, where this nursing home was given an F. Facilities that don't score well in long-term care often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in a few of the areas of routine healthcare services we assessed. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 83.33333 percent of its residents. This is several points lower than the national average. Surprisingly, this place was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we scored is short-term care. Sadly, it received an F in this area, which is an abysmal score. In our short-term care rating, we endeavor to create a meaningful measure for rehabilitation. In this process, we assess the facility's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
