Facility Inspections

Grade: A

While this nursing home's overall score was not a highlight, it actually really excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it an A for that category, which is one of our highest scores. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively insignificant. This place was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe. This tells you that CMS did not consider any of these deficiencies an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home really excelled in nursing, where it earned an D. Nursing scores are largely associated with a facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing scores. This facility fared well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Unfortunately, this facility received an F for its long-term care grade. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it typically means the facility did not perform well in our quality measures relating to resident care. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. We were disappointed to learn that this nursing home vaccinated only 88.46154 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Turning to the fourth area, this facility really did not perform very well here either. With a bottom of the barrel grade of F in short-term care, this is about as bad as it gets. Our short-term care ratings are probably more important for residents requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not just nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. With its weak grade in this area, we weren't stunned to discover that this facility provides substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The final measure we considered in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 2.9 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor metrics sunk this facility's short-term care grade.
