Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

While this nursing home's overall score was not a highlight, it actually excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it an A+ for that area, which is one of our highest scores. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. It is typically in your best interest to avoid nursing homes that had a long list of deficiencies. Although this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the area of long-term care, this nursing home was given just a D in that category. Unfortunately, this ended up being its second best grade. If you are seeking services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care grades. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is better than the majority of nursing homes. Surprisingly, this nursing home was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

This facility ended up receiving a a very poor grade in our short-term care category. It received a lowly F in this category. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to qualify measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We assess a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Considering its weak grade in this category, we were not shocked to learn that this place provided significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most nursing homes. Finally, we considered the number of patients who ultimately returned home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.6 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The final area we graded is nursing. It received a lowly F in this area, which is a very poor grade. The nursing rating features many factors. The most heavily weighted factor is the quantity of hours nurses spent with residents. This place averaged only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is well below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This place performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these statistics to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
