Facility Inspections

Grade: B

While this place's overall grade was terrible, it actually fared well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B for that area, which is one of our better scores. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite insignificant. This facility received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to resident health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This facility's next most favorable category was short-term care, but even there it earned just a D in that category. This is still a well below average grade. With our short-term care grade, we endeavor to craft a valuable measure for rehabilitation. In this process, we assess the facility's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Based on its weak rating in this category, we were not shocked to discover that this place provides significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other facilities. The last datapoint we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar metrics doomed this facility's short-term care score.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

This facility ended up receiving rock bottom score in our nursing category. It received an F in this category. We analyzed the licensure of nurses working for the facility, as well as the number of hours those nurses worked with patients, in determining our score in this category. This facility offered only 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is not a very impressive figure. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing scores. This place fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next category we rated was long-term care. This facility was given an abysmal grade of F in this category. If you are seeking services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care grades. After considering the volume of nursing care, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination record. We were optimistic to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 96.178345 percent of its patients against pneumonia. To our surprise, this place also keeps its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
