Facility Inspections

Grade: B

Although this facility's overall score was as bad as it gets, it actually performed well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B for that category, which is one of our better scores. Our inspection grades are tied to several items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these reports. Most importantly, you should avoid facilities that have severe deficiencies associated with risks to resident well being. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

We were also pleasantly surprised to discover that this facility received a solid long-term care rating in our assessment. We awarded it a B- in this area. With our long-term care rating, we focus on the sheer volume of services provided by a facility, as well as a handful of quality datapoints. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 83.65853 percent of its patients. This is pretty significantly below what we expected. On a more positive note, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the area of short-term care, this nursing home was awarded just a D in this category. In the area of short-term care, we try to qualify indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Based on its abysmal score in this category, we weren't surprised to learn this place offers significantly fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The final measure we assessed in this area is the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 0 percent of its residents returning home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Switching gears to the last category, this nursing home did not fare very well in this category either. With a very poor grade of F in nursing, this is about as bad as it gets. Our nursing rating assesses the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We consider both the levels of skill of those nurses and the number of hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
