Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable inspection report this year. As a result, it received a decent grade in that category with a score of B-. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This means that CMS did not consider any of these deficiencies to create an imminent risk to resident health or safety. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing score. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of F. There are numerous datapoints within this area. Most of these datapoints reflect levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home averaged only 3.1 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This facility also had abysmal marks in some of the quality-based metrics to go along with its weak nursing hour totals. We looked at the percent of patients experiencing pressure ulcers and we were very disappointed. This facility was at roughly 150 percent of the national average in this statistic.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The third category we analyzed is short-term care. This facility's received an unfortunate short-term care grade where it received an F. In the category of short-term care, we seek to qualify measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We assess a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. With a grade of this caliber for this area, we weren't surprised to find this place was well below average in many staffing figures we looked at. The facility supplied substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most nursing homes. The last statistic we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 40.3 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics sunk this nursing home's short-term care grade.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we analyzed is long-term care. This facility received a poor grade of F in this category. For prospective residents seeking a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are very important. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination record. We were pleased to learn that this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Although it had 2.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, its risk adjusted metric was not bad due to it having some more complicated patients.
