Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

While this nursing home's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually didn't perform terribly in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B- for that category, which is one of our better scores. We would argue that one of the most critical factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. We especially focus on the severity of the deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 9 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Tragically, we gave this facility an F for its long-term care score. When nursing homes receive this type of grade in long-term care it is often a bad sign for patient care and it may mean that the nursing home is not as well-staffed with nurses and aids. After we finished looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. We were a bit worried that this nursing home vaccinated just 90.4762 percent of its residents for pneumonia. To our surprise, this place was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

This facility ended up receiving rock bottom score in our nursing category. It received an F in this category. Nursing ratings are based in large part on quantity of nursing care available. This place averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is an alarmingly low total. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing scores. This place performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next category we scored was short-term care, in which this nursing home was given a very poor grade in this area also. We gave it an abysmal F for this area, which is definitely a major disappointment. Our short-term care scores are likely most critical for individuals needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally mandates additional skilled nursing services. This means not merely nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. With a score in this range for this area, we weren't surprised to find that this place was well below average in two of the key staffing figures we looked at. The facility provided far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients that were able to return home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3.8 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
