Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Although we gave this nursing home a horrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of A for our inspections rating. This score is far more impressive than the facility's overall grade. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite minor. This facility was assessed 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies an immediate risk to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We gave this nursing home just a D for our long-term care rating and that actually wound up as its second highest category. For patients in need of a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are very important. After assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. We were optimistic to find that this nursing home vaccinated 99.55947 percent of its patients against pneumonia. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

In addition, we gave this facility an F in the area of nursing care. Nursing ratings are tied to quantity of nursing care available. This facility offered a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is well below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This place performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we analyzed was short-term care, in which this facility received a very poor grade in this category also. Sadly, it received an abysmal F in this category, which is definitely somewhat alarming. Our short-term care ratings are meaningful for residents in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a vast range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. With its weak grade in this area, we were not surprised to learn that this facility offered far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most other facilities. The last metric we considered in this category is the number of patients that who were able to eventually return home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 3.7 percent of its patients returning home.
