Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a B- for our inspections rating. In fact, the facility received very impressive inspection report this year. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively insignificant. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this nursing home's next most respectable score is long-term care. Nevertheless, with a grade of D in this category, it still performed somewhat badly. In a long-term care setting, the nursing home's primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination records. We were optimistic to find that this facility vaccinated 95.69378 percent of its patients for pneumonia. To our surprise, this place also fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this nursing home's next best category is short-term care. However, with a D in this category, it still fared somewhat badly. Our short-term care scores are likely most critical for patients in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not only nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. With its score in this category, we were not stunned to discover that this nursing home is well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the measures we looked at. Frankly, this was what we expected here. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 5.3 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Switching gears to our final category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of D in our nursing category. This was the nursing home's worst category grade. The nursing rating features a host of data points. The most heavily weighted one is the quantity of hours nurses spend with residents. This nursing home provided only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is not a very impressive figure. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This facility performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
