Facility Inspections

Grade: B

Although this facility's overall score was as bad as it gets, it actually fared pretty well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B for that area, which is one of our better scores. Our inspection ratings weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid facilities with a bunch of severe deficiencies flagged. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This facility's second most respectable category is long-term care, but even there it earned just a D in that category. This still happens to be a well below average grade. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in this category it generally means the nursing home did not perform well in our measures relating to resident care. One of the factors we considered on top of nursing hours is vaccines. We were a bit alarmed this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to a relatively low 73.73418 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this facility actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 1.3 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Sadly, this nursing home only received a grade of D for its short-term care rating, which is well below average in this category. Short-term care scores are based on a facility's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a vast range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. Based on its grade in this category, we weren't stunned to find that this nursing home was well below average in terms of its number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its patients based on the data we assessed. Frankly, this was what we expected to find. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents that who were able to eventually return home from this facility. It performed better in this area, with 57.8 percent of its residents returning home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Moving on to our final area, this nursing home didn't perform well in this area either. Due to a poor grade of F in nursing, this is just about as bad as it gets. We scrutinized the levels of nurses at the nursing home, as well as the number of hours the nurses worked with residents, in determining our grade in this category. With a meager 2.7 hours of nursing care per resident each day, this nursing home's nurse staffing levels were well below the national average. On top of receiving below average marks for nursing hours, this facility was less impressive in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at in calculating our nursing scores. We looked at the percent of patients experiencing pressure ulcers and found that this place was at approximately 1.5 times the national average in this metric. This is a bad sign when you consider that so many pressure ulcers are preventable with better nursing care. Unfortunately, this statistic really dragged down this facility's nursing rating significantly.
