Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

While we were not high on this place overall, we awarded it a B+ for our inspections category. This grade is much more impressive than the place's overall score. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite insignificant. While this facility had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

In addition, we awarded this facility a B+ in our long-term care category. This is one of our more favorable scores. Nursing homes that do well in this category typically provide patients with closer supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. After assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 96.63251 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is more than the vast majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Although it had 1.72 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted metric was better than most facilities since it had some more complicated patients.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this facility only received a grade of D for its nursing grade, which was actually one of its better category grades. There are a variety of datapoints included in this category. Most of the factors reflect nurse staffing. This facility offered only 3.1 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is not a very impressive figure. Unfortunately, this facility also had terrible marks in some of the quality-based metrics to go along with its weak nursing hour totals. We looked at the percent of patients sustaining pressure ulcers and we were very disappointed. This place was at approximately 150 percent of the national average in this measure. This is likely a bad sign when you consider that so many bed sores are preventable with better nursing care. This metric helped pull down this nursing home's nursing rating quite a bit.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last area we rated was short-term care. We gave it an F in this area, which is an abysmal score. With our short-term care assessment, we attempt to create a fair gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at a facility's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. With a grade of this caliber for this area, we were not surprised to learn this place was below average in multiple staffing metrics we assess. It supplied significantly fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most nursing homes. The last item we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 46.3 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these relatively poor statistics was damning for this nursing home's short-term care grade.
