Facility Inspections

Grade: B

While this place's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually fared well in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B for that category, which is one of our better scores. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home received 6 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

Included in this nursing home's litany of poor grades was its F in the area of long-term care. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids, as well as the levels of routine medical care available. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Candidly, we were a bit concerned this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to only 56.30252 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best feature in this category.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

In addition, we gave this facility an F in the area of nursing care. Nursing ratings are based largely on nurse staffing levels. This place offered a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This figure is quite a bit below the national average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing ratings. This facility fared well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last category we scored was short-term care. We gave it an abysmal F for this area, which is a very poor score. In determining our short-term care grades, we assess the nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. This rating is more often than not a meaningful measure of a facility's rehabilitation services. With its poor score in this area, we were not surprised to discover this nursing home provides far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most other nursing homes. The last datapoint we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents that returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.8 percent of its patients returning home.
