Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

While we graded this nursing home incredibly poorly overall, it actually received an impressive government inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our best grades in that category with an A-. Our inspection ratings account for a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid nursing homes with a bunch of severe deficiencies flagged. This particular nursing home received 9 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to the area of long-term care, this nursing home was awarded a grade of just D in this area. Sadly, this wound up being one of its better features. Nursing homes that don't fare well in long-term care typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine healthcare services we looked at. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to a relatively low 63.21839 percent of its patients, which is somewhat alarming. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This was its best score in this category.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

This facility ended up receiving rock bottom score in our nursing category. It received an F in this category. When computing a nursing home's nursing score, we weigh the amount of time nurses are with residents as well as the level of skill of those nurses. This nursing home offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This facility performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these metrics to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final area we analyzed was short-term care. This facility was given a very poor grade of F in that area. Our short-term care grade is generally used to gauge a facility's performance with rehabilitation. To have highly scored rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to offer better levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The final metric we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.1 percent of its patients returning home. This was well below average.
