Facility Inspections

Grade: A

While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a very impressive government inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our best scores in that area with an A. Inspection grades are tied to many items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these reports. Most importantly, you should avoid facilities with severe deficiencies associated with endangerment of patients. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Sadly, this nursing home only earned a D for its long-term care rating, which turns out to be one of its better category grades. Nursing homes that don't fare well in long-term care often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in some of the areas of routine healthcare services we looked at. One of the datapoints we considered after nursing hours was vaccines. We were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to a relatively low 84 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this place actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

We also wanted to point out that this nursing home received an F for its nursing grade. We weighed the qualifications of nurses working for the nursing home, as well as the quantity of time those nurses spent with patients, in computing our score in this area. 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 in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these metrics to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final area we assessed was short-term care, where this nursing home was given a poor score in this category as well. It received a lowly F in this area, which is obviously very concerning. In the category of short-term care, we seek to evaluate measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. With a grade this poor in this area, we were not surprised to discover that this place was well below average in two of the key staffing areas we looked at. It supplied far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most nursing homes. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This was not a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 4.7 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. At most facilities, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
